Don't think I've ever seen that before.

Assuming it's Love Street with Albion Street around the corner, when was that wall actually knocked down?

In this picture from pre 1957, the future car park area is still occupied by what looks like large tenements, with the wall from the other picture to the left, presumably.


According to someone on P+B the lorry has a J reg.This would make it around 1971.

This is a great old picture, must be late 1800s...... It doesn't look like Well St existed when this photo was taken..

Well Street is to the left just after the cart. emoji106.png

Don't see a gap for it to be there and the bus stop should be around where the cart is also?  :D

Don't know if I explained it properly. Well Street is after The building with the White awning I believe.

If you look at the gutter line you may notice the building beyond that is running at a different angle in perspective. emoji106.png

Indeed it is, Specsavers he I come.  Thanks.    :rolleyes:

Building at end of Brown Street, wasn't that the Scottish Wool Growers warehouse.                https://canmore.org.uk/collection/1269737                  

My old man taking me to Love St took the route that passed SWG, through a tunnel under the  railway onto Underwood Rd.
