Bedford Place, showing a horse drawn milk cart (City Centre) (2 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. Early view of Bedford Place showing terraced properties on the even numbered, east side. Bedford Place joins Park Lane next to number 58 Park Lane, the Bedford Hotel. Central to the image is a horse drawn milk cart, the business of George Moss of 15 Airedale Place, off West Street. The milk is transported in a large churn, seen on the cart, and individual householders would bring a jug or other vessel to have filled. George Moss is likely to be one of the gentlemen standing on the pavement. Flights of steps lead up to the doorway of the houses where several people can be seen. These houses were demolished and on a 1952 O.S. Map Marlbeck House Clothing Factory occupies the site. Number 32 Bedford Place is in the centre and, at this time, it was the home of Addyman Parkin Barker, a woodturner and sawyer with a workshop in Mills Yard, Great Wilson Street. The photographer is the son of Addyman Barker, Adolphus Parkin Barker.
