No I'm not at all sure that it is Kepple Street and it doesn't look as if it can be when I just checked the maps. I just relied on what was written on the back! Stupid me! I should have known better!

Do you recognise it Robert P? I'd love to have the correct title for it.

Cheers.

I am very interested in local history of mid-Norfolk and I have lots of connections to families in the Lynn area. http://www.norfolk-tours.co.uk/

Are these 3 photos all the same place? I may be missing the boat here since I'm not familiar with the locations so don't shout at me too loud! :o)

but the 2 very similar showing with/without the woman appear to be earlier views of the photo marked as "Austin St. Headquarters of Railway" --- just a later view when the upper portion added above the bay window and all bricked up --- the small upper storey window on the adjacent bldg. looks like it fits plus the large drainpipe to the right of the bay window...... Could still be a 'railing' of a parapet to the left? very hard to see but there's 'something' there....maybe??

the surname is smudged but looks like Rose, Rowe or Rare
can't really see. She lived there in 1913 The address is given
as the Coastguard Cottage St Anns Fort. No yard Ted.

The lady and boy in the picture are Mrs Mabel Eagle (nee Painter) and her son Willis.
