Looking at maps - the great shot Dutchman found earlier - I think this was actually taken from New Street looking across south to Freeth Street. Freeth Street always seems a strange shape to be with its sharp turn then dead end - never actually going anywhere? Intriguing nonetheless as its another of those with very few images on.

FYI - I happened to be at Cov Uni yesterday and in the area by the George Eliot building there is a board with one of the old images here of New Street - they have planted a line of trees to mark the line of the old road which now runs through the campus.

We've seen similar images to this one before but this has greater detail of the bracing in its final days.

Thanks for that one, I finally found my sense of direction when I saw the dear old Gaumont in the background.

That last picture Neil is the other end of the route from Freeth Street. It's from a very nice collection at Historic England.

Here's possibly the best ever shot of the Dispensary on the corner of New Street/Priory Street in 1941 -

And though this is technically on Priory Street - to match my post above - the Dispensary again (thanks to Paul Michael Kennelly again) Edited by member, 17th Jun 2018 2:29 am
