Taken in 1955, looking west from South Scarborough Street, Rosen's is on the corner of Tower Street and Teesside Farmers on the left. Ward Jackson School is also on the left and the Central Stores in the distance. 

In the foreground is a builder's hut where work on the new St Joseph's Primary School has just begun.


The photo was from a photographic record of the Central Area of West Hartlepool prepared in 1955/6 at the request of the Town Planning and Redevelopment Committee 'in the hope that it will be of interest to future generations of West Hartlepool'  

The record focuses on areas which were within the next ten years to be completely redeveloped following The Max Lock Plan. It was compiled by WL Taylor and photographs developed by Thomas Clarkson Chemist of Tower Street.
