Indeed it is MR. I note that there are no tram tracks. That would make it a fairly early image.

To go with the others, Trafalgar Street nearing its end - so the caption says - though it looks like Thomas Street to me.

Hi Neil, I'm kind of with you on this, however the next block of 8 storey flats along form Givens House, forget the name (although it could have been Trafalgar House), was adjacent to Vincent Street and I think that's the view, so the Telegraph is correct if I'm right!

Cheers Mods - though it looked like the row in my image on post 322?

Hi again Neil, I stand corrected! You are right. I tried to compare the broken window patterns in the houses and they look the same. Plus of course there was the 'kink' in Thomas Street which you can just about see in the bottom left hand corner Thumbs up

The barbers pole mentioned in this post belonged to my great grandfather Harry Hopkins, who traded there from about 1890.

Loads of great stuff and original pictures about Spon Street, Spon End and Naul's Mill Bygone Spon End etc Another shout for Neil. One of the latest posts is about The Recruiting Sargeant with two pictures The first is that pub but the second is the earliest incarnation of the Rising Sun. It and the building to the left of it were demolished to create the building we recognise. The pub was in the estate of the Bablake Boys School.
