Bishopgate Street, Swinegate (City Centre)
Black & White imageUndated, An early view of Scarborough buildings in Bishopgate. Below the balcony on the left can be seen the sign for Hepton Bros wholesale manufacturers of mantles and waterproofs. Notices on the window and door inform us that they have removed to new premises on Oxford Row. The 1899 Robinson Directory of Leeds lists them as occupying 19 Oxford Row so this gives some indication of the date of this photograph. Brass founders can be seen on the right at 31-41 Swinegate.
