"Many men erected the stonework of this building. The work was directed by J. Begg."

The sign outside my office building. God bless Swinton Jacob!

I love old signs carved in stone and Shimla has some nice ones.

JenPat I love them too. I must post some photos of the ones around here. When I get rid of my current ute fixation ;-)

ifpics How lovely. I wish I worked in a building with history!
(well, I do, it's just not interesting nor does it stretch very far..)

megaera I have to grimace at the sheer pretentiousness of relatively modern Britons writing in classical Latin. And laugh at how incongruous J Beggs is in amongst all that Latin!

SoulCurry Hey Megs, be careful of what you about about John Begg. The man's my hero: he (along with George Wittet) was responsible for some beautiful Indo-Saracenic architecture in Shimla & Bombay.

megaera I don't knock him as a man, but he wasn't a bloody Roman, was he?
