  • General note

    Title from original mount. Remounted 1992
    Although signature and date appear to be genuine, dating is in doubt as one painting in the series, DG SV*/Sp Coll/Rae/10, shows a building not completed until 1845. The pictures may have been signed between 1891, when a photographic edition of the unsigned views was first published, and 1900 when Rae died.
