The Belisha Beacon was introduced in 1934, the black and white zebra, I believe, after the war. The way I saw it, the Sherbourne ran from one end to the other, under the pavement, a bridge and an ancient building each end. A stick of incendiaries right down the street, quickly put out, Luftwaffe, annoyed, came back with a second stick or more, the Sherbourne came to the rescue. A fireman said ".... you, We shall not be moved". Don't you just love old Cov.

Neil, Brill, Here we have a shot of the bottom of the market, lower West Orchard late 1930s, do you wonder why you were so confused at the buildings? TSP on the West Orchard topic said he thought the Rider Betts building was the last to be demolished. The way I see it, yes, but when? If there were no buildings below RB then that's why I cut through into the market. Solves everything for me.
