Need Help in identifying photo location, UK, 1907

Hi everyone. I am trying to identify the location in this photo based on the building visible in this photo. click on photo to view larger version
0BE8977C-7154-4DB0-A064-7C8B7339AC2A.jpg



Photo is showing tyrolean giantess Maria Fassnauer together with her sister to her left and english manager to her right. The other people are unknown.
The photo is taken in 1907 during her tour in the UK.

so far i have...

searched for buildings with housenumber 66 in some of the cities I know she visited, London, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Hull, and some more.
Searched in UKs listed buildings archive for words such as.. pilasters, stairs and so on.

Does anyone recognise the specific building, or building type?
Are there any architectural details that leads to any specific city or type of building.

Do anyone know what research that can be done further to pin down the specific building?
I am thankful for any answer, and yes, I do realize that this is a needle in a haystack .
have a great day!

There's this other picture with the exact same clothes on the three of them. It says "WHITE" but that's a hard term to google for it that happens to be the photographer.



There are professional studio photos from George Henry Hana's Studio in London so one could assume these two were taken somewhere else...but who knows?

That could be literally anywhere. It looks like a domestic building, probably a rather large / high-end terraced house, probably second half of the 19th century.

thank you for your reply! I have noticed that before, the three of them wearing the same clothes, even the umbrella is there, possibly taken the same day. I contacted a photo historician and even had a list of photograph studios named White throughout the country during the actual period, so far nothing. But probably this is the best clue so far.
