A Trip to Europe! Part 2 of 4

Part one of this post took us through the family photo album up to their voyage across from Boston to Liverpool. The first section of the album after the crossing contains photographs from their travels across Scotland, Wales, and England.

The order of the photographs in the United Kingdom, as I mentioned before, appears to be out of order unless the family crisscrossed and doubled back on themselves. They covered a lot of ground, visiting Scotland, Wales, and central England. The map shows all the places where they took photographs.


This is the order of the photograph locations as placed in the album:


v  Ellen’s Island (Loch Katrine)       v  Melrose Abbey

The first photograph in the album after their arrival is at Ellen’s Island (the Island on which Sir Walter Scott’s Lady of the Lake resides) on the Loch Katrine in Scotland, near Loch Lomand and Stirling.

Clockwise from top right:
