Can anyone help me identify this late 1850's Grenadier Guards albumen print? I am interested in finding out which battalion or regiment, and the location of this 'Guard House'.

Hi Bob, It's still up, i just approved it.
Well, I just could not help myself. Just bought this one from the same seller:
What a great pleasure to find a like mind to research this online.
I have not a clue as who the photographer was on mine. I was actually surprised that both mine and yours look a bit better than the Fenton ones. I believe mine may be from 1858-9.
The only information I have is this. I bought this from an eBay seller in Connecticut, USA. He only states that these came from an album labelled on the cover: J. Johnstone, Grenadier Guards.
He has several more from this album for sale, just search eBay for the seller don'tskip. search for "Guards.
i have looked up his sales in the past, and yes, there a re a few Fentons he has sold without knowing... Hmmm.?
This link may help. good luck.
Thanks so much for the information. yes, Hythe makes sense.
I found several photos in the Royal Trust of soldiers at Hythe, taken by Roger Fenton in 1860. I was surprised to find that he trained at the School of Musketry there in 1860. Here is one by him that i think must have been taken in the same spot as both of ours.
