Bought this on eBay as I don't remember seeing one like it - Probably have it on here somewhere though having said that :rotfl:

Anyway, I found it interesting as its a slightly different view of the town from the Bridal, and includes what looks like building work (or just empty land) at the back of summer hill (see close-up)

Very interesting photo Brian,it's a bit hard to make out,but the gardens don't seem to be structured on those houses in Summerhill ;--)

That's what I thought, also looks like the houses on the opposite side are just being built as well, and no sign of the East street houses. I've magnified the card in an old specialist scanner I acquired but all it does is bring the printing ink dots up so that's as clear as I can get it.

If its possible i think that post card has been is taken from a painting that has had the artistic licence to a new level. surely the houses on what is Summerhill should staggered. The whole post card is just not right. Strange.

Definitely something not right about
this view.

If that is Summerhill, there is no way
the houses would have a level roofline.

It's a photograph not a painting that has been hand coloured - and yes there is something about it that's why I posted it - I wonder is it an early version of photo manipulation? as I said I have been able to magnify it and the only thing I can see is that maybe the ground (field) in the foreground has been "copied" over something - the gap from the old session house to Summerhill is too wide, and the tree's I don't think were there - it IS possible this is an early card used before the ones we are used to seeing but I'm not sure.

Further investigation required :-C
