Where is this? #14
« on: Tuesday 30 August 16 20:40 BST (UK) »
I am guessing that this one is going to end up filed in the 'no idea' box, but lets see what you brilliant detectives can come up with  :)  I've added some close ups of (perhaps) useful things, but can do more close ups if required.

And I warn you, there really isn't much to go on.........

Spidermonkey, you wouldn't believe what garbage I am typing into my search engine in the hope that something pops up   ::) ;D

Is that a poster on the side of the entrance?  There looks to be writing at the top but I can't make it out.

Are those doorbells on the righthand side - entrance to flats? Is that a handkerchief in his breast pocket or it it a badge?

I have been trying o make out what is on the left side of the door too jool, it certainly looks like something is written at the top, but what is below is also a mystery. Is there any chance of a clearer image of this side, please  Spidermonkey.

It does look like a badge on his pocket Groom.  I wonder if it's some sort of "members only" club and he's the doorman.

It's obviously a hotel or a large pub with an off-sales outlet to the right of the door. 

Do you know anything about the man in the doorway?

I wondered if the badge is some sort of military blazer badge, RAF or something, it looks like some kind of regimental insignia.
