An excerpt from the guide:
"Making your way to Clarendon Lanes’ inner court, take a moment to stare at its beauty. Look at the contrasting old brick house restaurants on one side and the modern condominiums on the other. The history of courtyards such as this one is fascinating. The ByWard Market history section [hyperlink provided in eBook] explains that such courtyards were used for the disposal of waste and junk for the then Sussex stores. These waste sites were then remodeled in parking lots, and only in the 1970s were they restored in the public spaces we see today."
