Good evening,

Well, what a conundrum so just to help I think you also have a railway running across behind the two houses at the far end.

All the buildings would appear to have flat roofs and I would say not hospital but shops and houses. The lady on the right hand side is wearing  a wrap round pinny with bib front and wide neck, probably the shop owner or worker.

The "workman" in the foreground appears to be carrying a broom so I would like to suggest post coronation and it's clearing up time.

Iv'e already spent 3 evenings ploughing through churches uk and Ireland to no avail yet but am still on it.

As Gaffy has previously said, that has to be a park or common in the background where all the trees are - surely it's being used as a fairground.

The small tower to the right of the church spire and to the left of the tree appears to be the top of a helter-skelter. Also, to the right of the tree is what looks like a merry-go-round.

Michael.

Not sure about the fairground..I think that is a clock or bell tower type thing on top of a building. there are quite a few similar looking things on buildings in London - like this one at Hornsey Road Baths

 - although I have not managed to find the right one yet!

Good evening,

Here you are, your other thread gave the answer. This is looking the other way but note the pub lamp on the right and the cross over where the workman was walking. The photo would have been taken from the block of flats.

Iv'e looked on google maps st view but it looks nothing like the same now.
