On S.W angle, west face of Water Board building in a fenced compound, but readable from pavement. Got a special mention in TAC59, see: http://angrycorrie.t15.org/Tac59/blackdow.htm . Located at Fairmilehead Crossroads, Edinburgh, this is just over a mile from home. It took me until 1994 to spot it and a further eleven years to photograph it. Photographed from outside 20/03/2005, GRP.
