This would be like looking out at my back garden! If it was as long, as well-manicured, and had the space for so many fine features! Somebody was proud of their back garden, and took the trouble to get Arthur Henri to take a shot of it. I know that we had a back garden before that backed onto the river – is this nearby?

    Possibly around the corner on Newtown Road? One of the terraces near Newtown House?

    Numerically nearby items in the catalogue talk of " 'Upton', Newtown, commissioned by Captain Greathead". Might be a wild goose chase ... catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000590972 catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000590971 catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000590973

    Do the plants, flowers, and trees look like 19 April (1898) ? Looks slightly springy to me.

    I think Upton is likely. Check the top right of this Monkey Morgan, the white house at top right is probably Upton, and I see a Greek Urn in the lawn. ("Whats a Greek Urn?")

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley Goody! The three-window bow on the garden side extends to the first and second floors; the drawing room (see catalogue title "Garden from Drawing room window.") was likely on the first floor. And the shadows are 'right' for looking ENE (or almost east) at about 13:30 (see comments on the other photo).

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] I think we’ve come to the conclusion that it’s Upton, which is to the left, and round the corner a bit. If you look at the 25", it’s the house with the bow window to the left of Newtown House.
