- I've now uploaded three more - Garden with enormous vase (for pedants, I know it's not a vase, but it looks a bit like one, and I'm not sure what else to call it), which is another view of one I posted earlier, and two called Yet another baronial pile. This one looks, on the original scan, to have a date of 1891 above one of the windows at the top left -is that a clue?
I think I'm getting near the end of mystery ones - your help is very much appreciated, and I hope they are of interest.
- Another two identified - not really in the Dundee area, though, as they turn out to be of Balmoral.
Do take a look - you never know what you might spot!
