What we know about this image :

Victory Square can be seen in the right distance where the trees are.

Thornton Street runs right to left beyond the Coop Dairy on the right.

Just beyond Thornton Street, the higher building on the left had originally been Avenue Road School and then the Technical School Annexe.

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.
