      And a few more - some almost certainly impossible, one very easy. I'm sure it's the church on the main street in Broughty Ferry, now a curry house, but I can't remember what the dedication was. I'm also not sure where it was taken from - it must be up by Carbet Castle, but I've no photos showing crenellations.

      Jimmie,

      Delighted to see the Discovery where she now proudly sails! My great-grandfather was a merchant mariner and seeing how men lived on board ship, at Discovery Point, was second only to seeing his grave when I took my Mum there last year.

      The church is/was St Lukes on Queen Street in the Ferry just across from the post office.

          Hi,

          I think it stopped being a church in the 1960s and was a church hall for a
          few years.

          I remember in the late 1960s or very early 1970s that it was converted to a
          Masonic hall. The downstairs pews had been removed before then, and a
          number of internal partitions were erected.

          I can't remember when it was converted again - it's now the Gulistan
          tandoori restaurant on the ground floor and a snooker club on the first
          floor. It's quite a good restaurant too.

All come from a photo album I'm scanning and I'm reasonably sure that they are in Scotland and the Tay Valley area.

            As I have told Adrian, the car outside Grosvenor Terrace is a 1912 Lanchester 25, built by Frederick Lanchester, the best of the three brother car builders. Note that the engine is between the front seats and, therefore, there is no bonnet.
            Church is Queen Street Church, which amalgamated with St. Lukes around around 1955. I have an article about this.
            Interesting castle and topiary. Might it be Earlshall, Leuchars? Just a guess. Ed R-B

              what I identified as a coachouse is actually the gatehouse to earlshall. Well spotted!
