Good Evening All

Whilst the building is named the location isn’t however there is some scribble on the back which may be useful if you can decipher it.

I think it is Granary Staithe. The word staithe suggests Norfolk to me.There is a granary staithe at Wroxham where I stay regularly, but I am not familiar with the Moorings Hotel.

A bit of Googling turns up The Moorings Hotel, Burnham Overy Staithe, King's Lynn. Can't find any decent pics though.

Not the Moorings Hotel in Motherwell either - I've stayed there many times over the last 30 yrs.

Flat Earther think this must be it as nobody can seem to find others in that area, Well Done.

Absolutely not. The style of the chimney stacks is totally different

Govan1x that looks like it from the riverside. The archway in the stone wall is a good pointer.

It also marries up with this grainy overhead pic, which shows at some time it appears there was some castellation either side of the balcony, but all the windows match, also the jetty and steps to the river. This shows the portico style porch from the original postcard too.

Flat Earther, having studied the images I tend to agree with you in that Govan1x was correct in the first instance so i shall give it to him.

Well Done Govan1x and Well Done also to Flat Earther for the corroborative image.

Well done

Well i only came up with the Photo but it was QuizMan & Flat Earther who came up with a destination and where to look.

lets put it down to a team effort with Flat Earther the one that deserves the credit.
