This view looks from James Court towards the Lady Stair's Close. 

The building straight ahead is No 2, Lady Stair's Close, restored 1988-91 by the Lawnmarket Housing Association.

Lady Stair's Close passes between this building and the wall-mounted lamp post, leading in a few yards to the Lawnmarket, part of the Royal Mile.
