Mystery Building

"From the Archives" returns this week with a view from Radnor as it appeared more than 100 years ago. This historic photograph shows the entrance to one of Radnor's grand estates, called "Ashwood Manor." Besides the wall, only one structure is visible in this image, just peeking out on the right behind the wall. Though its setting appears much differently today, it is a well-recognized building to those familiar with Radnor. Can you name it? Post your answer in the comments, and the true identity will be revealed later this week!

I believe that is the Royal Bank building on the corner of N. Spring Mill and Lancaster.

I think it's Kennilworth at Lancaster where Frank Kelley's real estate office was (in the gatehouse behind the wall, which is no longer there), followed by a couple of banks, Tobias Knobloch and Royal, I recall.
