Nice image Neil. The rise of big buildings have killed views like that. That scene looking up New Buildings is a short distance to the left of the sketch in post 161. I've gained an appreciation for photos like that because they provide perspective for earlier sketches that might show better buildings but have an element of artistic inaccuracy.

Yes Kaga - (1937 map) - I think the photo is only just prior to the war. Edited by member, 7th Jun 2019 9:55 am

Prof. Yes of course Neil is right, you can see the spires quite clearly, sorry about that. But I wasn't looking and thinking of the picture at the time, I was thinking history. New Buildings skirted the Priory pool and had many tall buildings - the armoury, the Golden Lion, etc and at the bottom where the tram stands were, the Smithfield, would have blocked out one of the spires.
