I built this a while back, in fact, quite a while back for a client who wanted a 'budget building' - in other words, a building built on the cheap using commercial products namely brickpaper and etched windows and there was nothing cheap about it after considering the work that went into it !

Beautiful as always, Allan.

Is it a replica of something or a generic example?

Not really Max, just kind of typical of UK factories built in the Victorian Era with cheap labour and especially where the wool mills were concerned - massive factories, enthusiastic attention to  architectural features and detail, hundreds of windows yet not quite the same enthusiasm for overworked and underpaid  workers where children as young as  5 were employed to crawl under  rattling and dangerous machinery to clean it out.

No health and safety and minimum wage then, just fat cat mill owners living in sprawling mansions in sprawling grounds with sprawling wives and sprawling mistress's !

That is in no way cheap looking and so I must conclude that the effort you alluded to made it so and not the cheap "brick paper and etched windows."
Another inspiring piece from a very talented person.
