The close

Another different view of the wally tiles today.
A close is the common entrance to the building where you gain access to the flats. Usually two flats to a floor.
The door seen straight ahead in the photo is the exit to the back court which is the private garden area for the use of all the residents in the building.
If you have a home in a tenement building then it is said you "live up a close".
