Good Evening All

All four of these unposted cards I should think are of the same place. They have a bog standard divided back and all are annotated with the number 2 091.

I think I shall consign these to the bottom of the pile!

I was thinking, somewhere like Lavenham in Suffolk, until I noticed the tall building on the right of the triptych.

Building style does not look like the Cotswolds, but they are dressed stone rather than brick

The building featured in the right-hand of the triptych looks like it may have been an old coaching inn at one time, ie. an inn with high archways for the horses and coaches to go through to the cobbled yard behind. An ostler would have been at the inn to change the horses while the passengers had some refreshment. Some of 'em were known as ‘Posting houses’ where horses to pull private coaches would be hired out and then changed at similar inns at the next large town.

Might be Amersham as a wild guess.
