House in Phipps Bridge, home to the Harland family. The varnish factory of William Harland & Sons Ltd. was just to the north, as can be seen on this 1894 map:

      It was where the houses numbered 209 to 223 Phipps Bridge Road are now, north of Homefield Gardens. Try the georeferenced map, this is where you can see an old map overlaid onto a modern street map.
