Very much doubt it Kaga, though I was born two years later than the date you mention.

The road was widened some time between 1889 and 1906. Previously the road had been flanked by wide borders probably made up of a dirt path and a separating grass verge (as seen in other areas). They expanded the road, removing some or all of the verge, leaving the paths next to the road, probably with a kerb stone by then. At the same time they ran tram lines up the middle. To the east they terminated at the Bull's Head Inn and the stocks in Stoke Green? In the other direction it split at Far Gosford Street with one line heading up Paynes Lane and the other heading to Lower Ford Street. The two lines joined up again at Hales Street.
