The caption on the back of the Raphael Tuck 'Oilette' postcard above reads:

Lady Stair's Close

"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."
