Who lived in a house like this? No.2
« on: Sunday 03 October 21 13:23 BST (UK) »
This one was also bought in Somerset. It reminds me of Shakespeare's House in Stratford but it's not that one. The back has nothing on it, it is pre 1902 as there is no dividing line for address on the back.
Over to you...Have fun and thanks for looking  ;) It's not very clear as it is a lithographic print and not a real photo.

Just an observation - first impression - those chimneys look enormous! Is that the 1900s equivalent of a photoshop fail?   ;D They look way out of proportion to the house, specially the chimney stack on the right.

My first thought is Cheshire/Shropshire, but that's because I know that part of the country!

Something strange seems to hav happened to the house on the right  :-\

Add - now I think it's a building projecting at a different level with shadows of the branches

Re Ruskie's mention of the chimneys.

They are a feature of many Tudor houses.

Well done Spidermonkey, good to see it's still standing.  I had to go out this afternoon and was looking forward to coming back and searching, I should have known one of our super sleuths would have found it by then  ;D

Ebay has postcards with the same photo as Carol's and some of the interior...
