Some really good feedback here and thanks so much for your interest...I believe them to be taken around 1945.

Bruce...I think they are statues.

There are two photos from the same batch here although they may not be the same location:

Thanks for your detective work...It's been really useful.

I had that happen the other day to one of my posts. A mod said that it sometimes happens when you include a link in the post, which is what you've done.

Very long shot this, but working on where he lived.

Does the spire on this church (St Ann's Tottenham) look like the one in the photo? If so there is a large hospital nearby - have a look on Google maps

I have found an Address where his wife was living in Tottenham Lane, Hornsea... in army records...so your suggestion is looking good Groom.

Just a point - all the street signs amongst other signs were removed during WW2.
