Red Lion Street area, Kirk's Yard, Nottingham, 1919.  All demolished in the late 1920's-early 30's and replaced by some of the first purpose built council houses.

Aberlemno Cross Slab - central device of the famous 8th century Pictish cross slab in Aberlemno Kirk yard in the Angus region of Scotland.
