Who can guess the location of this month’s postcard poser?

For those who are new to this feature on our blog, every month we share a postcard-style photo taken somewhere in the UK. It could be a particular property, a famous landmark, or just a view of the town centre. All you have to do is tell us where and when the photo was taken.

Let’s see how quickly someone can get this months location.. answers in the comments please!

Peterborough Town Hall & St John’s Church

The building in the front is the Peterborough Town Hall and it was taken in the 1930’s

Definately Peterborough Hall with St. John’s Church in the background. However I think that the building sandwiched between the two I don’t think exists anymore as it looks as if it were built off of the older raised hall structure in the forground. But when I went to Peterborough a few months ago I distinctly remember the archways were open on all four sides. I reckon it may have been a Victorian addition that copied the same style, but I imagine like many old but perfectly good Victorian buildings it went the way of the wrecking ball. Another loss.

Well done all! I think that @sarah pipped this one so good work Sarah! @Darren Silk is right though, the building in between the Church and Town Hall is no longer there.

We’re clearly going to have to find a really tough one next month to challenge you lot!

Thanks so much for taking part 🙂
