Found Antique glass photo plates

A recent visit at a local antique shop produced these two images on glass plates. One is of Chichester Rents, a place somewhere in London, of what looks like a newspaper image. The second one is an actual photograph of the James Stewart Distillery at the bottom of Saucel Hill in Paisley Scotland.

The information on the Paisley plate was found on the building. That scribble helped identify the location with Google helping for the rest. I have no idea of the year it was taken however. Maybe someone on the web can help me out.

Anyways, this was a great find for $5. Now that they have been scanned, they can be preserved and shared with the world at the same time.

Thanks for watching.
