Identification Longshot/Talking Point 96

Good Evening All
This is NOT one of my new style puzzles i.e. it is a mystery also to me and I do not know its location :o(
This little mystery was in amongst a bundle of postcards that has just recently come into Fran’s possession.
There are absolutely no clues on the back of this standard, divided back, unposted postcard.

First thought of Stamford,Lincolnshire.

Second photo down.But the houses don't look quite the same.

Houses look similar to aylesbury street, fenny stratford sheep market.
The fact that the photo is taken in a different position makes it harder.
I think this is going to be a very hard one.

That does look promising.

look like Southdowns to me, if that's of any help.

  Brumas 23:17 25 Jul 2008

That does help, at least we know what part of the country we are searching.

I was going to post "The Lord is my shepherd" but thought you might take offence and thought better of it ;o))

The only thing that looks unusual to me are the type of hats being worn by the men, I would have thought farmers always wore a type of flat cap. There is a big difference in the roof tiles on some of the houses.

May I also comment on the FE's participation, I can't remember it happening before. Although of course, I am not usually right in anything to do with your puzzles Brumas. What's the difference between Southdown sheep and Northdown sheep? I always thought a sheep was a sheep.

If you look towards the end of the roww of houses, there appears to be one with a 'Dutch' style roof... So possibly a Fenland brick village.

Can you imagine the complaints from 'incomers' if we had markets like that now outside your house:)

The shop with canopy also looks 'Fenlands' by the style of the upper ornamentation and bay window.

There's also a few bricked up windows,they obviously didn't approve of the dastardly window tax.

And the dog, centre picture looks very 'streetwise'...
