For many years Rogers' Confectioner & Tobacconist's shop was at the corner of Oxford Street and Stockton Road. The shop itself says Oxford Corner. There is a Travel Agency sign in the left hand window of the shop and on the pavement outside is a sign advertising 'Bee Line Excursions'. The Bee Line garage was in Oxford Road almost diagonally opposite the shop. On the right hand side of the photo is Oxford Street School.
This photo was taken in October 1962.

These chapel buildings are on the corner of South Parade and Oxford Street and were part of the Belle Vue estate most of which was built in the 1870s. South Parade is the only street with the original houses. The chapel on the right is currently derelict but the building on the left, which at the time of the photo was an old people's club, has been converted into a house. The photo was probably taken in the 1970s.
