I'll be sure to let you know. In the interim, I have been thinking of submitting a piece on the views to Pacific Northwest Quarterly - will keep you posted.
Dally went on an excursion around Puget Sound in early October 1866 on the HBCo steamer Enterprise. A description of the excursion was published by Captain Porcher of HMS Sparrowhawk, also on the tour. See Smith A TOUR OF DUTY IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. In addition to the view of Seattle, Dally photographed Port Angeles, Port Townsend, and Steilacoom (3-part panorama). I am just revising a book manuscript on Dally, and I have yet to find any of his Puget Sound photographs in Washington. If you uncover any, I'd be grateful for the reference! The images are in an album held in the Toronto Reference Library. The Port Angeles view is in a few other albums, one in Library and Archives Canada in the Francis McLennan album, accession 1979-109 (I worked at the Archives 1977-2003 before moving to a teaching position at Queen's).
