Discovering Art

I find it amazing what one can do with just a pencil or pen. Here are three original works. The portrait of an unknown lady in a bonnet, I believe to be quite old. It is unsigned and undated but of extremely good quality.

The next two pieces are by the same artist and are city scapes. The cathedral view could well be a British cathedral but the second street scene looks far more southern European to my eye. I have been unable to decipher the signature at the bottom of the drawings but they are both dated 1921. Anybody recognize either of these places? I will also add a photo of the signature just on the chance someone might be able to decipher it for me.
