Viewed from Station Road
The first two photographs show views from the Station Road end. I can see Prices fruiterers on the corner, Andrews library and fancy goods shop on the left, on the right Harts furnishers and a boot repair shop. The Baptist Church is visible on the right further down the street and there is a large motor vehicle, perhaps an early bus.
Viewed from Church Road
The third photograph is from Church Road end and these buildings are well remembered by me. There is the Salvation Army Citadel, the picture house which was used as a recycling unit which became Flexers before they moved into new premises, and the Baptist Church which was demolished in my early childhood. I estimate that these pictures were taken around 1930 but I may be wrong on this.
Can you help?
Does anyone have an old Kelly’s directory so we can see how the numbering went? I am interested in numbers 46 and also 67 or 65 North Street. I would love to hear from anyone who has memories of North Street. If you can help, or share a memory, please leave a comment below.
