COMMENTS
Comments:  From notes and attachments on the album page it is evident that the albumist attributed the document to Henry Bell (1767-1830). We have been unable to connect Bell with Gower Street, London(?). Other Bells are connected in some way with Gower Street. But none with no. 69 - said not to have existed before the new numbering of the 1860s. Mrs Gaitskell is unplaced, too. She is called "countrywoman", which could mean that she has left her (and Bell's) native Scotland. That being the case(?) it would be meaningless to seek another location for 69 Gower Street outside of England.
