I take your point about the inaccuracy of his description of locations. He had similar problems with dates, as he mentions in his description of Moonrise.

You were right; that's where AA took his, too. The fact that it also ties in which his recollection of the location (the road, esplenade and low stone wall) is a nice confirmation but not necessary for this conclusion.
The funny thing is, it doesn't really matter to me where they were taken. They stand by themselves; the precise location has only a slight historical interest. I mentioned "New Inspiration Point" in my review because it is such an appropriate name given the impact these photographs have had on me and so many others.
Thanks for an interesting discussion, ROL.
