A while ago Bruce Castle Museum contacted me to tell me about the discovery of a picture entitled "Harangay House". I was sworn not to publish until they'd sent it out as part of today's news letter.
I've looked at it a bit and I think there’s little doubt in concluding that it’s Harringay House, or a small part of it.
The picture isn't dated, but going by the series of which it is a part, it could be just before 1870. But, if it was, the house was still occupied at this point and later, until 1880. Another option is that it was done after 1880 when the public seem to have been allowed free range for a while. This might explain the figures at leisure.
Working out the orientation and exactly what is pictured isn't straightforward. I've a few ideas. Anyone else?
