Builder's Marks
Some marks are difficult to read, yet alone work out who made them. A prime example is the wall surrounding Hodges yard. This wall has been there for a very long time, so who made the marks, and, were they all done at the same time? As you will see below, they don’t appear to be graffiti, but it is difficult to read them.

Even in closeup it is very difficult to determine the actual character
more specialised lighting is required
