Almshouses for retired Estate workers, who had no families. They were built with money that the 5th Duke had won with some of his race horses, hence the name. The names of the winning horses are listed on the rectangular stone at the front of the building. I can only remember one : "Semolina". My good old Raleigh bike is also in the picture .

This looks like an old capture Bernd. Welcome to the Premier Gold Star Group, so glad you joined. Well done!
Great shot , thanks for info
A timeless shot with great lighting.
The soft lighting gives this picture almost an antique look
The character of the picture , as described by the comments , is due to the equipment : I used a pre-war Contax II with an uncoated pre-war Biogon 3,5cm f2.8 . The lens lacks the bite of modern coated lenses with their high saturation and contrast , but produces images of great charm .
Love the image that camera has produced! Thanks for the explanation and I agree that it has great charm!
You've produced a wonderful effect Bernd. Lovely picture.
Superb job and interesting info the how it was recorded
