|||Brunswick Street, from Morley Bottoms (Morley)
|11th April 2016.
View looking up Brunswick Street from Morley Bottoms, taken with the intention to mimic the one seen on picture ID no. 200646_161142. Comparison of the two shows that little has changed since 1904. Apart from changes in businesses, the buildings in the foreground are more or less unaltered. The short grassed area has replaced the houses which were once there. In the background, new homes stand on the higher elevation, although the stone houses beyond are still there. The stone wall buttressing the higher ground has stood the test of time, as has the one at the side of the incline of Bank Street. Image courtesy of Graham A. Schofield.

Image shows stone built premises forming part of the Royal Hotel in Station Road, Morley Bottoms. For 1970s views of the property see Leodis images 2006118_160381, 2005127_160084 and 2007119_162728, when at that time this building was occupied by the butcher, William Crosby. We would be particularly interested to know the origins of the lettering on the lintels above the window and door which read; "The Devonshire Pub" followed by a break and then "Co Ltd." If you can throw any light on this then we would welcome your comments. Image supplied by Graham Schofield.
