There are posters for Oxo, Bovril, Ovaltine, Betta biscuits, Bass No 1 and Nestles milk. We also see newspaper and cigarette signs, including the News of the World, the Daily Mail and Craven "A". Two boys with a hand barrow are in front of the newsagents. At the right is the Hurst & Woodhead timber merchants yard.
