I used to live at 21 Hessle View. The shop on the right became "Dodds Post Office" and the one on the left "Duftons Bakers" They made lovely savoury rolls!

What a wonderful neat and tidy image. Not a car in sight!!! Could the only vehicles to come down this street have been horse-drawn ones? If this was the case, might this picture have been taken before The Great War?

This view brings back memories of the time I was an apprentice T.V. engineer at nearby County Wireless in Queens Road. Duftons made wonderful Cornish pasties and curd tarts, I used to buy one of each nearly every day for lunch. Ken Dodds who ran the Post Offfice was one of our customers as were many people living within this view. The area looked pretty much the same in the late 50s and early 60s as it does in the photograph. But, sadly whole area now looks very seedy since the advent of 'buy to let' accomodation, and it would seem to be occupied by tenants with little pride in their neighbourhood.
