View looking south west down Compton Place to the junction with Stanley Road, close to where it joins Stoney Rock Lane. The wall and trees in the distance on the right are part of the cemetery. The road between the terrace of houses and factory on the left is the north-east end of Stoney Rock Lane. A large advertising hoarding for Mackeson's beer is prominent, in front of which is a bare patch of land left by the demolition of the other houses in Compton Place. Properties still standing number, from left to right, 8-2 and are built back to back with numbers 1,3 and 5. Montague Burton Ltd, wholesale clothiers and Yorkshire Dyeworks are located on Hudson Road, (behind the lamp post, off to the left). Compton Road started at the junction with Hudson Road.
