It was situated between Broadgate and New Buildings but was demolished to make way for Trinity Street.

Thanks Dutchman, I had it in the right place, but on closer inspection of the photo I have realised that what I thought was a roof top of Butcher Row turns out to be a flower bed!

Not seen this one before - a very late view of Butcher Row in 1935 apparently - cannot be long before demolition but the buildings look salvageable in today's light to me? Why-o-why could I not have been able to have explored it Sad The fish looks tasty! Big grin Again - looks like a Film Set!

Good on ya' Neil. A great photo, I love those old pics., and you are right about the fresh fish - looks tasty. reminds me of the old fish market. The man standing in the fish stall doorway looks like a ghost. Any more like that ? Thumbs up

No prob Dream. Great aren't they. Will post all I find. Am I right in thinking the row on the right is roughly where today's flowerbeds are in front of Holy Trinity

Wonderful photo Neil. It looks like they may also have had problems with pigeons - that could just be one I can see on the left next to the first-floor window Smile I'm also amazed at the height of what appears to be a telegraph pole in the middle of the picture!

Photos from 1935 or pictures of ghosts? Big grin His ghost-like appearance would have been caused by the long exposure used by the photographer. The man on the right probably appeared in the doorway, spotted the photographer, then immediately stepped back out of view - causing his image to appear transparent and "ghost like"! Oh my

As I work in IT I'm a bit of an expert "Surfer" so always on the hunt! Yes I wondered about that tall post?

I thought it looked mire like a flag on a pole.

Alternative view of pole next to A W Garlick My first thought was it was a telephone or telegraph pole, if there was a post office in the vicinity, but it might be an electricity pole and might never have been connected because the street was demolished not long after electricity was rolled out. You can see the things the wires would have connected to on a few of the buildings in Neil's photo.

It looks like a telegraph pole to me? The early ones were unusually tall and heavy.
