The caption on the back of the Raphael
Tuck 'Oilette' postcard above reads:
"On the right in the foreground is the
house of Eleanor, Dowager Countess of Stair, recently almost rebuilt
by Lord Rosebery. The large open close to the circular
building on the left leads into the Lawnmarket, and in this building
which stands in Baxter's Close, Robert Burns once lodged."
