Hi Sean. Many thanks for your note and attachment. Certainly, this is the Langfier studio my Grandfather ran, and the framing is exactly identical to the few surviving ones I have. The image looks like a military hospital with recovering soldiers with voluntary nurses possibly, not sure where though. Maybe the image has something on the back? I know my Grandfather suffered from shell shock when in a military hospital in Northern France during WW1, and did take images of hospitals, could he have been there too, somewhere in the UK? It's a mystery, but very interesting, did you acquire this at car boot sale? Were there other images too?
