Bill, can you give the year these were taken?, there use to be a shop at the end of cecil st that is now a house, can just make it out on your photo but it doesnt look like a shop.
This shot was taken near to the bottom of the roads and there was an open part called the wreck. On the playing fields did people used to have sheds and lock up, Near to what we kids called the lucky brew?
my grandad lived in leader st i remmber bout 1984 bringin his coal in loved it round there we used to play on that spare land houses on it now
Thats my house the end terreced on Leader Street no 43
St Catharine's steeple/spire look vertcal on the shot. It wasn't and is now being taken down and rebuilt before it fell down. The church foundations are to be underpinned before the steeple it is rebuilt.
