Part of group of photos that show Aldershot Military Town and nearby Military Area. There are two military encampments Camp Left (223), Camp Right (226 Low, 209 higher), Camps Left and Right shown in (365, 498) at higher level.. There are two Panoramas Low and High, described left to right. Pan Low ( 494, 658, 567, (666, 667)), (495, 645, 655, 656,,657, 664, 665)), Pan High (555, 672, (560, 661, 671)). All looking away from prevailing wind, i.e. east. Duplicates in (brackets). Well worth sorting out and then finding Google Earth reference for comparison. 658 shows Wellington Monument and Basingstoke Canal, both of which are on Google Earth.
