In the first picture on the north side of the road, Freeth Street and Cox Street are on either side of the middle line of the photo. On the right (south) side of the road, just beyond the two storey building, Whitefriars Street was built opposite Cox Street. In the second photo Bayley Lane is on the left and the first turning on the right is Much Park Street. Sadly I know of no early photo from that spot and only a Herbert Cox painting of the stretch beyond Bayley Lane looking north east. A few look the other way. As photogenic buildings were lost, the artists/photographers changed their favourite composition spots.
No worries, I got the images from a book with many 'before and after', images. Perhaps the author had a limited choice of views, even though it was still Jordan Well? Some of them are interesting to me since they are from about 1973.

Since many buildings in Jordan Well were flattened and the town planners finished off those survived near Cox Street there was nothing much to photograph in 1973. The new museum was one of the new replacements, followed by the Polytechnic. At the other end of time, the same view of the end of Bayley Lane was interesting by modern standards but pre war it was a bit mundane. Maybe there were photographs but I've not seen them.

I think this has been seen before but nice size for detail, sad as it is.

Yes Neil, a good copy of a well known image. It also shows more to the left and right than most copies. To place the location, the building on the left with the mock Tudor fa├žade is genuinely old and at the time it was bombed it was the Mattock and Spade. I could be wrong, but the specific building location of the pub changed on at least one occasion. On the right, beyond the tall wall, you see the two halves (one gabled) of the Dun Cow. In the picture below you can see the two buildings and the building to the right that left just the tall end wall in the bombing photo. This was relatively new having been built a short while after 1821.

NeilsYard, could it be there were so many pubs, that work was more physical, 'elbow grease', none of today's modern gadgets, so more tiring, more thirsty.
