Can you identify the location or even the name of this house? It has beaten our experts!
An email from Norm suggested that the architecture looked American. He suggested the Lees River in Massachusetts.
This led me to look up other Lee/Lea/Lees Rivers. There only seem to be three in the world - according to Wikipedia. England, Ireland and the USA. I flew the length of the River Lee in County Cork (on Google Earth) and there doesn't appear to be a building which matches. The Lees River in the USA is a 3 mile tidal waterway. Sadly, Google Earth does not reveal any suitable candidates there, either.
Now, thanks to David Bradbury, we know
the source of the image. He has emailed to tell us that "The
picture "On the Lea" is taken from the chapter-heading on Chub (page 37)
in volume 1 of the Rev. William Houghton's "British Fresh-water Fishes"
Which is another interesting
