Upperkirkgate architectural scene, Aberdeen
To the left, Nos. 44 and 46, dating from the late 18th Century and a typical granite townhouse of that era: C-listed (LB20583: http://portal.historicenvironment.scot/designation/LB20583 ); note the pend (alleyway to the back courtyard) to the right. To the right, No. 42, the last survivor on the street of a building with the gable-end facing the street; C-listed (LB20582: http://portal.historicenvironment.scot/designation/LB20582 ). Aberdeen City Council seems to have an unfortunate knack of placing waste bins and other objects in front of its interesting buildings.

Arms of George Leslie and Christian Walker...
...as seen on the side of the B-listed 6 Upperkirkgate (see: http://data.historic-scotland.gov.uk/pls/htmldb/f?p=2200:15:0::::BUILDING:20578 ). The building dates from around 1890 but incorporates fragments of older buildings from the site. George Leslie was Provost of Aberdeen from 1685 to 1688. He married Christian (or Cristin) Walker just up the road at St Nicholas' Kirk on 15 July 1647. His arms (Argent on a bend azure three buckles or) are impaling those of his wife (Or, three pallets gules surmounted of a saltire argent on a chief azure a crescent of the third between two spur-rowels of the first). Motto: Deus providebit (God will provide).
