Provenance sought...

Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos posted this request at UFO UpDates:

[This] photograph, dated 1961, has appeared on the Web as located in both the UK and Saskatoon, Canada.

Does anyone know which is the correct locale?


  • If VJ can't find the provenance, it's going to be a tough ask for anyone else.

    I've had a look using Tin-Eye and the Wayback-Machine without any success.

    It's possible to seek advice about identifying the trees in the image. For example, if the one on the right isn't native to the province of Saskatchewan we'd err on the side of England.

    The low-pitched roof puts me in mind of the post-war pre-fabs in England. The elevation of the chimney might also be an element worth pursuing.

    I've worked in the roofing trade and will ask a veteran builder if he can help.

    Of course, I'll have to snip out the bloody saucer or he'll just laugh at me!

  • Here's an example of an English post-war pre-fab.

    The pitch of the roof and the windows are very similar...

  • It's UK by the architectural details of the house as well as the proportions of same.
