On Saturday morning I was in Brighton Vale and I think the houses there are the same
as the mystery house.

A new one for you folks. This is a watercolour by Sybil Katherine Mellon. She was from Blackrock and painted scenes of the area and Booterstown. 1998 she was actively painting so I'm guessing the gates and walls are no more. Any ideas where?

Ah, thought for a minute it was where Vincent Brown lived up from Colimore but then I saw the chimneys behind to the left :cry: was it only Blackrock and Monkstown she concentrated on ?

She painted another of a shop on Booterstown Ave, but this could be anywhere Keeper. That front wall on the right seems familiar.

Are these houses opposite the Bird Sanctuary? The walls have been altered to allow car parking in the front garden.
