I thought I'd seen this building before, it was in Kay Parrot's, Village Liverpool.

'This is the lodge to Quarry Bank, designed in 1866...The house, in the local dark sandstone, is built in a muscular gothic style.' p102

The building is now the gatehouse to Calderstones school. The original painting was done a hundred years ago in 1910 by Liverpool painter, Frederick Beattie, 1851 1913.
