Bronze reliefs, High Street
Bronze reliefs, High Street
I'm not quite sure how one names or best describes this curious structure, but thanks to the wonders of the internet a website named duffus.com has done it for me. Its entry reads, " An interpretive work positioned on the site of the Tolbooth or Townhouse, Court and Jail. Each bronze panel depicts aspects of the town's development: The Church and Elgin Cathedral, the Tolbooth, and its functions, the trade and industry of the town, the architectural development of the High Street, Spynie Palace, Birnie Kirk, Pluscarden Abbey, Council Chamber, Ladyhill Castle, Royal Burgh of Elgin 1136, SIC.ITUR.AD.ASTRA, etc. The bronze panel is surmounted by a crown representing the many royal connections with Elgin. The bronze work is supported by the statue, which has four beasts. two wild, (The Stag and the Salmon) two domestic. (The Bull and the Ram)."
