NS2776 : Masonic Lodge: keystone detail

Masonic Lodge: keystone detail
Masonic Lodge: keystone detail
The lodge as a whole is shown in NS2776 : Masonic Lodge. The arch of which this is the keystone can be seen in that picture, and the person visible in the photograph provides a convenient point of reference, in that the arch (and, in particular, its keystone) can be seen directly above his head.

That side of the building is alongside a narrow sloping lane with steps: NS2776 : Bubbly Jock Brae, Greenock.

The carving on the keystone is one that is common in Masonic symbolism. The shape found within the circles varies, but the letters, which are read clockwise starting from the 12 o'clock position, are invariably:

H.T.W.S.S.T.K.S.

(Internet searches for that sequence of letters will elucidate the meaning.)

The building as a whole is also shown in the earlier NS2776 : Masonic Lodge, Greenock, and various other details in NS2776 : Masonic tablet / NS2776 : World War I memorial tablet / NS2776 : World War II memorial tablet / NS2776 : Rising sun.
