taken 9 years ago, near to Crosshill, South Ayrshire, Great Britain

King Street, Crosshill
King Street, Crosshill
The tall building comprises the village Post Office and some houses. The single storey building is a traditional terraced cottage which (I think!) is an old weaver's cottage. Crosshill grew as a weaving village in the early 1800s. The extra window near the door suggests that this was indeed a weaving cottage. The weavers needed as much light as possible and the loom would be located close to this extra window.
