From my rapidly failing memory,
There was a rellie named Buxton living Sheffield 1901 census. A relative of his may have lived in Grimsby and taken the photo whilst on holiday. I take most of my photos whilst on holiday so don't get sidetracked to Grimsby. I must confess that before we knew the Grimsby connection I favoured places other than Sheffield for the same reason.

Oh, dear, chances are he was only using it for an ink-blotter to clean his stamp!! ;D  ::) :P... J.J.

funny, as I've missed notifications on so many of my postings, but I get
umpteen dozens on this one... ;)  :-\ ( trust me, I do want to solve it,
but at the same time...am tempted to turn off notification  ;)

ahhh, but then it has been pointed out that we have indeed confirmed
that it is, beyond a doubt, a photograph!....with several stamps on back.

   Could the street be Railway Place? The 1919 Kellys Directory has a Railway Hotel on Cleethorpe Road, Grimsby, and the modern Multimap shows Cleethorpe Road and Railway Place as adjacent. Could the photo be of a side/rear entrance?

I have been looking at Grimsby/Cleethorpes and I found, but no photo, a Darleys Hotel which sold Wards beer, and it said next to the Town Hall, now the Town Hall does have a similar style of architecture.http://www.cleethorpesuk.com/index.cfm?id=569&image=70&type=Local%20Images I think we need a Grimsby expert now.

East Bank Place looked good to me, Paul, but I can't find a hotel
there...I can't even find THERE!!!   J.J.

I didn't add this the first time around, but I suppose it's a diversion from the
searching...and we can think some good thoughts for those who were affected
by the tragedy...
