Moorhouse store on corner of York Road and Park Road

What we know about this image :

Taken around 1953, this is an unusual view looking north along York Road from near St George's Church. One of only a very small number of traffic lights in the town can be seen on the corner of Park Road and York Road. The Moorhouse store was in the Regent Buildings And sold mainly clothing and curtaining. In the mid 1960s, Ron Richardson took over the shop. The buildings were demolished in 1976 and a Barclays Bank is now on the site.

Further along on the right, Gales' garage can be seen and the church tower on the left is York Road Methodist Church.
