York Road from Victoria Road Junction

What we know about this image :

This image from the early 1950s has been taken from the traffic lights in Victoria Road. Nothing is really recognisable now. The house on the far right, North View was demolished and the large formerly Coop Chemist building replaced it, The shops to the left, apart from the two furthest left were demolished as the chemist's building was larger than the house it replaced.

The shops visible are Carr's Fashions, Jack Bearby and Spark's the Bakers. Bruce Moore's was later on the far end of the block, although not when this was taken, and has since had a number of food and drink uses.

The church on the other corner of South Road was York Road Methodist Church and this was replaced by a red brick block of shops, currently mainly charity shops and a pawnbroker.
