I found a collection of photos like this, with no context to go with them. I have a feeling they were from when I was moving and looking for a house. I went and took some pictures of places where houses were advertised for rent. Given the dates they would be from my move to Oxford, which didn’t see me living in anything quite like these places.
And, wow, there was a lot of pebbledash at the time, or maybe in the area. I’m so glad I didn’t end up living somewhere like this.
