Caption: Detail of building at 7 Carlton Street, Edinburgh, Lothian Region.
Description: The image is a detail of the ground floor at street level of a Georgian town-house from the Edinburgh New Town. The building shows the typical stone masonry style with regular high quality sandstone blocks with recessed margins, termed rustication. Such v-jointed rusticated ashlar emphasizes the formality of the stonework and was used in many such buildings. This building underwent stone repairs in 1983, where decayed stone was replaced with new sandstone from northern England. The replacement blocks are clearly visible, but should blend in with time. None of the original quarry sources of Edinburgh sandstone is currently operating.
