I know we have a dedicated Little Palace Yard thread with my family connection on LPS however not one for Palace Yard so adding here. I'd not seen this view before. I have already mentioned there are no photos that I know of showing the view of the Yard from the front on Earl Street. However, thanks to Sue Wilson on FB - she bought this slide from eBay which shows an unusual view looking north. You can see over the road to the Council House. I have been trying to match up the exact spot but it appears the road has changed level from today looking at what we can see here. Edited by member, 28th Nov 2019 2:12 pm

Basically the photographer is standing behind the posts you can see here taken from the archway on to the road.

Neil, would they be the original cobblestones do you think? Great photos, thanks for sharing. Thumbs up

I would have thought so, Dream, yes but it was probably a well-trodden courtyard given its age. Sue's comments were interesting on the slide - My grandfathers business The Graphic Press was in the last building on the left near the entrance into Earl Street. It was on two floors - until the Blitz!!! I’ll check my records but I’m pretty sure on the Graphic Press notes the address is 1 Earl Street although the entrance to the premises was the last door on the left in the photo Heathite - is there anything to reference this in the directories, if you wouldn't mind?
