Kims unknown house
Could anyone identify this for me please? Quite large, very old, wooden. I wondered if it might be a C E Turnbull?

Having looked up Turnbull I can see why you are wondering, the shape of the windows above the bay are more like his houses than Lines. However, on the ones I saw on the net, the shape of the opening door followed the shape of the bay, and none had the columns by the front door. Without paper and fireplaces it's probably impossible to prove, but I would put my bet on Lines.

I don't know anything aboutTurnbull houses, but if you compare the house base to G J Lines in the database, its identical to ones like the no. 10. Also the front door is identical, down to the jewel in the door to my G J Lines boxback, compare it to photo 26 in the date base of another box back and you will see what I mean. The roofline looks identical to G J Lines too. this house has been redecorated and altered several times (it's the one that was made into a filing cabinet isn't it ) it's quite possible that someone has 'personalised' it in the past
