Paintings of Granton Harbour found in Australia

In is interesting to note that our web site is being found and accessed worldwide.  The office has received the following message from Australia:

“Hello,

Two watercolour paintings of the late 19th century Granton Harbour are on their way back to Scotland from Australia.

Your local historical society is featuring them on their website at:

http://www.edinphoto.org.uk/0_P/0_paintings_weir_granton_west_pier.htm

They will be offered for sale in the coming weeks by Edinburgh auctioneers Shapes.

I hope this is of some interest or use to you.

Yours faithfully,
