Can you help identify this manor house?
« on: Sunday 09 June 13 19:13 BST (UK) »
I recently was given an old carte de visite photo album containing about 60 images.  I'm curious about the previous owners, and posted a story about it on my Family Photo Reunion blog.  I'm particularly interested in learning which manor house is featured in a photo inside the album.  Can you help?  Please drop by and have a look if you can:

Thanks,

I am surprised there are zero replies to this knowing how clever Rootschatters are at discovering places from photos and pictures.

I think the photo show the back of a manor house/stately home and that's why it hasn't been recognised.

What do you think?

Hi Judy,
Thanks for revitalizing this post. I still haven't had any luck discovering which manor house this is.  I volunteer at a Family History Centre and last month had a woman from Northumberland come in.  She said that the place looked familiar to her, but she couldn't remember from where.  She thought perhaps only a part of the building remains standing.  I think you are probably right about the photograph being taken from the back of the manor.  There's a possibility as well, that the place no longer exists.  I still have a lot of research to do on the photographs inside.  Perhaps something there will yield a clue.

There's a friendly lady on here called Aspin and she's from Northumberland so perhaps she will be able to help you.

By the way it's a lovely story about your husband buying you such a treasured gift.

I'm bumping this thread, in the hope that someone might be able to help me identify this manor. I still haven't had any luck.

Thanks!
Carol

Hi Carol.

Don't know whether it would work, but have you thought about a reverse image search?

There's a few out there, but try this one:https://www.tineye.com/

Good luck.
