I wonder if one of you might have a photographic
image of either of the following mansion houses, long since
'ASHCLIFF' was a house commissioned by Sir George
Baxter of Baxter Brothers and was sited in Perth Road, Dundee, opposite the
Western Necropolis. It was demolished to make way for the Harris
'HELENSLEA' had its front
entrance from Claypotts Road, diagonally opposite the main driveway to
'Ballinard'. Part of the mesuage was sold in order that Strathern Road could be
contiued to meet Claypotts Road, in the late 1930s and lay empty for some years
before being demolished.
This is an interesting quest, as it is my
understanding that not one of Scotland's eminent architectural historians has
been able to find an image of either mansion.
