Those bricks look rather modern, as does what appears to be a tarmac surface. Don't think that's the original Dutfield's Yard somehow.

Interesting. My question would be why anyone would have taken this photograph unless it was of Dutfields Yard. Pretty pointless otherwise I would have thought. My gut feeling is that this was taken there, but perhaps many years later, by someone with an interest in the subject.

Lots of reasons someone might have taken a similar photo not of Dutfields.

A few I can think of

1. Wanted to show someone what they needed bricked up

2. To show the job they did repairing the ground

3. To send their brother "Hey remember how et used to climb through here when we locked ourselves out"

In a past life I worked part time in a photo lab, you couldn't begin to guess the things some people thought worthy of taking photographs of.

So to me it is still a question of provenance

Richard, what makes you think this place is Dutfield's Yard? Was it listed as such on whatever site(?) you found it on?

Also, I'm curious about the inked "2" on the lower right corner. I can think of a few reasons for numbering what seems to be a simple snapshot:
-- evidence in a trial
-- auction on online-sale item
-- maybe use as a photo in a manuscript of a book?
-- Or...?

So why is this place important enough to be photographed in the first place, and why then number the photo?

Not to be a party pooper, but Richard posted this "picture?"
My question is, 'is it real?'
Are we being tested?

Let me remind you what Richard wrote on another thread just two weeks ago....

"I am aiming for these images to actually be photo realistic,...."

Hmmm

It's a bit of both... real AND fake.

The 'photo' is of this location in my neck of the woods...

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.19...7i13312!8i6656




with a bit of photoshopping added to really fake it up!










Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up
