Great shot of Gas Street not long before it went - August 1964. Demolition has already started. I think this is at the SW end, the photographer standing with his/her back to Hill Street, basically looking the same way/view as my earlier post but a lot further along/down.

Does anyone remember the chip shop, round the corner from Gas Street? I think there was a paper shop there as well, and a little store.

Am wondering if anyone ever worked at E Laxon & Company during the time that it was located in Gas Street? Think that it moved in the early 1960’s.

As I understand it they relocated to Charter Avenue, a few years later, by which time I had left to join the Royal Navy. I also understand that the area was required for the Ring Road.
Hi Slash. Hope you have a better response this time than your previous request Thumbs up

A mixture of Gas Street and Laxon's, apologies if they need categorizing.
