As there does not appear to be a dedicated Cox Street thread - this one deserved a special spot as new to me - 1930ish? Edited by member, 19th Jan 2018 12:30 am

It is a very good picture but I'm fairly sure that it's post war.

I understand your confusion Helen but Poole's warehouse has yet to be constructed on the corner of Grove Street which places it before 1939. Also many of the buildings in the picture were badly bombed and had been cleared by 1946. Smile

I believe the truck in the foreground was registered in early 1930 at the latest and I don't think would have been more than 10 years old when pictured. It is a Nelson's Cement vehicle from the Stratford area, the company ceasing to trade in the 1940's. Therefore this also supports the date of the picture probably being in the mid 1930's.

Great photo, Neil Thumbs up Typing "Cox Street" into the search box will bring up many references to the street, too numerous and varied to bring together into this thread Oh my

Here's a scarce image looking north over to Cox Street - not many images of those buildings on the west side pre-blitz/Uni.

Thanks to my mate Dean Nelson on FB. Don't think I've seen this one before. I think its Cox Street looking south towards Jordan Well. Could that be The Old Star Inn on the left? No image of that one, Rob, on the pub site so might be one to add?! The inn closed in 1920 so the picture predates that. Edited by member, 21st Sep 2021 11:38 am

Newspaper report 1911 says the Star Inn belonged to Charringtons

The tall building on the right definitely matches the one in the distance in my post#1

Nice find Neil, great old shot that, including the pub's apparently very rare appearance in a photo! (And thank you Anne, too, for the confirmation.) Do you know who owns the picture for us to seek permission?

I don't, mate, no, otherwise I would've added. I'll ask Dean and report back.
