Junction of Wooler Road and Grange Road

What we know about this image :

The image was taken after roadworks in 1963 in Wooler Road with Grange Road at the right and The Parade on the left. A new halt sign gave Grange Road traffic right of way. The house facing along Wooler Road is Hollymount, originally the home of the Browns, a timber family, which is now converted into upmarket apartments. It had for some years been a teachers' centre and before that a children's home.

Behind the wall on the right would be Wilton Grange and on the left The White House public house which at the time was St Francis RC Grammar School.

A roundabout was later built at this junction.
