Good Evening All.

A rather quiet view of a river or canal on the outskirts of town. English Brothers is the signage on the second building to the left and that is the only clues we have because it has not been posted.

Looks like the Midlands, specifically the canal complex around Brum.

I think it is Wisbech on the river nene according to google english brothers had a Timber company there. English brothers is the ame on the building in the picture.

Think it might be the port at Wisbech, only can't find right view yet.

Brumas, there is still an English brothers in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire.

Good Evening Brumas. I didn't realise it was as late as that when I saw your posting appear. I shall now stare in frustration at your postcard puzzle. .... Are there a couple of park type rowing boats in the left side of the picture? Just by the ramp. The larger building looks like a warehouse of some sort. Not a lot of clues in this one is there? That's me off to make the coffee now as the kettle has just boiled.

Brumas. Maybe no.82 will be easier?

Like coffe addict I can't find the definitive picture but I am pretty certain it is a view of the river nene as it passes through Wisbech and past the Engish Brothers Timber yard

I tend to agree, it does look like it is Wisbech, let's hope we can find a more defining image?

English Brothers website has some old photos but unfortunately they don't help as they don't match.

How about trying to get it on Google Earth? Some of their areas are quite old now.
