This is a copy of an ancient and faded photograph. It is almost certainly the oldest existing photograph of the Steine, (see previous photograph) and by the name POOLEY on the pediment of No. 16, it was probably taken in 1855. Certainly it must have been before 1859 when the captured Russian guns from Sebastopol were placed here. These can be seen in later photographs on succeeding pages. Note the high brick wall enclosing the Pavilion grounds, which bears no resemblance to the low wall of more recent times.
