How come that this 1769 drawing by Borlase does not show the facade as it is now in the photo below, albeit from a different angle?


More to say but let's deal with this first :-)

Here's another drawing not as it should be by Dr Borlase's gt gt grandson W.C Borlase. This time of Trethevy Quoit and a copy of a photograpgh taken by Mr Lobb of Wadebridge, Cornwall.

And here is the quoit today from a very similar angle. Where is the supposed prostrate backstone in the copy of the photograph etched by Borlase gone?

Seems like he had the same habit as his gt gt grandfather and left out or added what he felt.
