I fear for how that's going to look from the other side by Fords Hospital. Sad

I think that it's an image from Historic England.

Regarding picture 803 in Rob's pics. It does look like a watercolour Rob. I think that the building on the left is the King's Head Inn and the buildings on the right are the Girl's Reformatory. The bushes and curved walls are part of the park. By the time Sydney Bunney paints the same view after 1906 there are factories in the park and beyond the King's Head Inn. The original inn was replaced with this- Forum library image Is that a date at the bottom of the painting? I can't read it but I'm guessing that it must be mid 1800s? I don't think that it's as early as a William Henry Brooke picture which was about 1820. Ebay is coming up with some crackers Big grin

I've had a better look at the painting courtesy of Rob and there doesn't seem to be a date. Although there looks like there was going to be another figure in the foreground. I've found another picture by H Masters dated 1888, so it's in that ball park but my gut instinct is slightly earlier.
