"I didn't expect to find any more answers as there are not very
many clues in some of the photos.
However, Photo 11 looks like the remains of a demolished building
in the left foreground, and there had been a covered entrance
under the far end of that building.
I'd noticed that most other entrances were in the middle of
straight lengths of building but the opening on this one would
have placed it in a corner, ie with a wall perpendicular on one
side, making it slightly unusual and therefore hopefully more
easily spotted on a street plan?
Referring to the 1890s street plan, there is one place where I can
see an entrance arrangement as above and the demolished building
is still shown, in Cowan's Close.
This photo could be taken looking towards the NW. Just out of
sight off the right of the photo would be a view towards the
entrance to Cowan's Close, off East Crosscauseway.
The tall brick building in the background would be parallel to and
between Cowan's Close and Clerk Street. I'm pleased to see a
small glimpse into this street, as it's where my great grandfather
(Thomas Wallace) lived in 1878. The street is so different
