Police box on the junction!!

Ah, interesting to compare that one with my postcard image - I'm assuming, then, that the lovely house on the end was demolished so the factory could be expanded. I wonder if the locals back then complained as much as people do nowadays about the removal of nice properties? Wink Forum image

This cracking shot comes from Nicola Smith on FB of Queens Road looking west. You can see the Winfray building on the right, the turn into York Street and the Baptist Chapel with its full length spire! When the road was really one of the main arteries to the south of the city centre.

Fantastic shot, Neil. I worked at Brita Finish Ltd. (electroplaters) for a while. The frontage of the Hen & Chickens PH can be seen just a few buildings along. The entrance to Upper York Street and the abattoir is just visible. York Street (where the Anslows sign is) seems to have been closed off.

Don't think so, Mods. Just beyond the third cyclist you can see a break in the kerbstones, where York Street is - there's a pedestrian just about to cross over it. It was a narrow street - and it's still open, although it just gives access nowadays to the Ramada carpark, whereas it used to lead into Moat Street.

As a follow-up to post #33, Nicola Smith has allowed me to share the next one (apparently there are a few more!). They were taken by a Mr M Toms. This was the view looking the other way west at the junction with Hertford Place. Another great capture and detail of that property on the corner (looking at the 1950 map would've been 32 Queens Road). The couple are crossing the Regent Street junction. I was at that spot this morning - sadly nowhere near as lovely today.

I was there on 28 Feb 2013 Wink Strangely, the address of the "Aardvark", formerly "Hen & Chicks" (1835-1994) and "Fowl & Firkin" (1994-2001), is no.2 Butts Roll eyes

"I was at that spot this morning - sadly nowhere near as lovely today." Neil said. In the distance, the top of the spire of St Thomas's Church can just be seen behind the trees where my parents were married in 1940.

Thanks to Midland Red, Mods - taken in '76. I can just remember it.

This is No.6 Hertford Place apparently so would be just out of shot from my post#37 along from the Hen & Chicks -
