Description"This old stone displays the emblems associated with a tailor in the form of the goose and shears. The term ‘goose’ seems to have come into use around the 1650s when the tailor’s pressing iron was so called because the handle resembled a goose’s neck. The winged soul at the top is a symbol of immortality." Photo by Walter Baxter, 2013, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
