Which Building is this please?
« on: Wednesday 06 March 19 13:50 GMT (UK) »
Here is another one for you. Would welcome any ideas on which building this might be. I have been given a box of photos, documents and a family tree that was donated and am piecing things together before finding a Family on Ancestry for their return.
Thanks for Looking.

A hospital, or a barracks?

Thanks for joining in Skoosh and Mike with your thoughts....both are worthy of consideration  ;)
Somewhere on the coast I think by the look of the background.

It reminds me of the barracks in Berwick upon Tweed. 

But having just looked at a current photo probably not  :-[

I wonder if the 2 pentagrams above the door is significant.
