Where: Can any of our experts on mid-levels & the Peak recognise it? This photo comes from a small collection of around 20 photos I bought recently. Some of the other photos show
views out from the Peak looking north, so maybe this was up on Barker Road?
What: A large house, but it's not clear if it was meant for a single owner, or if it was a symmetrical design with two separate halves. Other photos show the top of the slope, which had a swimming pool.
When: One photo from the group shows the previous generation of the HSBC HQ building, so I estimate they're from the mid / late 1930s.
Who: Hopefully if we can pin down the address, we can use one of the lists of people to track down who was living there. Then if we're lucky, that'll be the original owner of these photos.
And if you can spot anything else of interest in the photo, please let us know in the comments below.
