Miller's Court Demolition Photo
Are we 100% sure that what we are seeing in the demolition photo of Miller's Court IS indeed Miller's Court and not the court behind Numbers 28 & 29 Dorset Street?

Hello Richard

I've seen much higher-res versions of that print that make it pretty clear that we're dealing with Miller's Court. Sorry I don't have a copy that I can post... perhaps someone else has?

Simon, that is astonishing! Thanks :)
What else have you got that would help me stop making all the mistakes I've made with these models? That clear image has instantly shown me lots of areas of my current model are wrong on many counts! (goddamit!).

Oh! and those chimneys! with the extra wide chimney breast! a piece of the puzzle that I was missing!

Have you got any more that you'd be willing to share with me?

An extra wide breast Is needed, I believe, when a chimney services more than one or perhaps two fireplaces.

With due respect to Simon Wood, the roof tiles and roof structure don't look right. The substantial building across the street doesn't look right. But what do I know? To me, this looks to be wrong for Dorset Street, even possibly wrong for London. Paris maybe?

It's a high resolution scan and detail enlargement from this photograph.

Hi Richard,

Sorry, that photo is all I have in my Millers Court collection. Apart from the Leonard Matters photos and the well-known one of the window.

Adam Wood and others located landmarks proving this is Dorset Street when the photo was first posted 14 years ago.

There are many threads here on Casebook discussing it.
Here are just a couple of them.

Thank you, Simon!

I count 9(?) chimneys, would this mean that there are 9 rooms inside of No. 26? And, with the chimneys being along that far wall in the photo, does that indicate all of the rooms were situated along that far wall too? (Wondering if I have to rethink the placement of the staircase)
