Does anyone know where this picture is taken? I am stumped. The sender thinks its New Brighton but I am not 100% sure on that as I don't recognise the "folly" castle turrent in the background. I thought Leasowe Castle grounds...
I would say definitely not Leasowe Castle. Their turret is a different shape and not square. Not Victoria road to my knowledge anyway where was there open space to ride horses like that in Victoria road? Perhaps that is just the address of The Kinghams?

The Kinghams did own shops and clubs (Empress Ballroom) in Victoria Road. I agree that there is no common land/fields in Victoria Road or even the surrounding by this time as it was all built up. I actually think the picture is maybe further afield ie on the west side of the Wirral.
