"Having looked at Photo 5 so much now, I just glanced at Photo 17 again and realised that it is almost the same location!  Comparison of the chimneys confirms it.

The building in the foreground of Photo 17 is the same building as at the left of Photo 5.

The tall building at the left of Photo 17 is the same building as at the left of Photo 5 and the buildings at the right edge of photo 17 are Gibb's Entry."
