This is actually the Railway Hotel in Inglewood - we currently own the Inglewood building. The door under the 'A' in 'Railway' is now a window, and the window under the 'L' is now a door. Apart from that the external structure remains the same. A better quality reproduction is catalogued as Reg. No: MM 8146
