When I first saw the stereo view at the top of this page, I wondered where Statue Gallery, Edinburgh was.

However, that question is answered in the Reply 1 below.

Allan Dodds has been enquiring as to where the Statue Gallery might have been in Edinburgh.

"I've just received this fascinating response from , who wrote:

Royal Scottish Academy

"How interesting.  I assume your slide presents a view of The Statue Gallery in the Royal Institution (the building called the Royal Scottish Academy since 1910 when there was a great re-shuffle or arts organizations in Edinburgh).

This operated between the 1830s and 1910. It was a long, corridor-like gallery with casts of figures down one side and casts of reliefs (mostly) down the other.

It was open for copyists and students during the nineteenth century and was especially an important facility for aspiring women artists who had otherwise limited access to study facilities."
