Good Evening All. This is a GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARD. There isn’t much to go on, as it is unposted and with a standard divided back there aren’t any clues! click here

There seems to a gravel pit to the right. Wonder if the chimneys relate to a brick works?

I thought that as well, at first I thought it might be the London Brick Company in Bedfordshire, what with the marshalling yards, but there aren't enough chimneys for that site.

I was thinking of the Swindon to Reading area. But that is a wild guess!

Wonder if it is in the Peterborough area?

Here is a picture of the Brickworks at Whittlesea, near Peterborough it is a modern picture with more chimneys, but they could have been added at a later date, there is a rail marshalling yard as well, but it looks a bit close the the brickworks as compared to the old photo.

Not a church spire or tower in sight.

Not many urban scenes like that to be found in England.

If these are large tanks (upper right} it could be the Grangemouth Refinery taken from what is now the M9.

I don't think this photo is anywhere near the UK. The cart is being pulled by what looks like a water buffalo type creature rather than a horse and the genral flatness of the countryside and the design of the buildings suggests the far east somewhere.

My thoughts too, hence my comment on church spires!

Looking at it again. I think that this may be a cement works. There is a gravel pit to the right. You don't get cement works and gravel pits near the centre of a town hence the lack of church spires. This is more than likely on the edge of an urban area.
