Where in the World?

When you’re looking back over your holiday snaps at the end of the summer, spare a thought for the cataloguers at Bethlem Royal Hospital’s Archives & Museum. Every now and then they come across something completely inexplicable in the collection. Here’s one we found a little while ago. The Great Western Railway building to the left of picture (at the top of the harbour slipway) suggests that it is a West Country harbour town, pictured in the late nineteenth, or early twentieth, century. The church looks distinctive, but our knowledge of English ecclesiastical architecture is not encyclopaedic. We’d be glad of assistance with this one. Just add your comment. Once we know which town this is, we’ll start work finding out how a photograph of it came to be in our possession.
