Could it be some almshouses some where?

It looks a bit like Northern France to me.
Any clues to give us about who you think it *might* be, and period?

Have you taken a magnifying glass to the writing? The scan isn't good enough for it to be legible when blown up on screen.

Try contacting the National Almshouses Association - http://www.almshouses.org/ - and see if they can help.

Hi

Could there be a connection to Kent?

I drove past almshouses in Rochester at the weekend which look very similar.

It may be worth looking at.

I think it's Foord Almshouses in Rochester. If you go to Google Maps and put in the post code ME1 3AF it brings up the road Priestfields . Switch to Street View and rotate the image away from the unlikely
looking houses and I think that's it .

Good luck

Hi,

I live quite near Rochester so drove out today to look and Foord Almshouses is definitely the place in the picture.

I'm glad to see my initial hunch was right. I wonder what the connection to the almshouses is.
