      The Dog was called Mixixpiddilick i think ( now im takin the p)

      so you are taking the p; he was iddle for short. I am looking at the large building in the trees on the left; the tall young tree on the right seems to be growing out of higher ground; but, yes this is a private estate, the dog is very comfortable in its own territory; this is part of a local merchant s estate, and the belvedere is about 10 to 20 years old in this picture, going by the marks on the bases. I am checking through some old maps of the town.

      You may be right, but I can t see anything like that on the 1936 map, I spent a lot of time there as a child/youngster, actually working.

      Whereabouts? I have just done the tour, including the Garden of Remembrance (what happened to the parterres?), not a sign of it to me? I found an anchor with no name, though.
