Is it even a photograph? It has a strange look to it, as if it might be a drawing. Maybe its been 'colourised'?

WTM Fran says it is a vintage printed, lightly coloured pre-1918 postcard. Lots were hand coloured but this is just as this particular printer turned them them out.

I wouldn't have guessed colour printing was that advanced in those days.

Live and learn...

Well I'm stumped. No vehicles of any kind whatsoever, no visible church, no immediately obvious pub, not even any obvious sign of shops etc. Was going to say not even street lighting, but I'm not too sure about that now, as there may be something in the foreground.

I'm vaguely thinking scotland, possibly because of the architecture, possibly because of the building materials.

But I wouldn't bet any money on that that I couldn't afford to lose!

It looks like Dublin to me

WTM if you look at it closely you can see just how primitive it was.

WTM It is Scotland.

The problems with this site meant that I have not looked at all this evening.

It looks like a model town. That's quite a lot of open space.
