Black & White image3rd June 1953. Looking north past Norman Mount are three rows of brick built terrace houses.

The other has a M & D (Meredith & Drew) biscuit hoarding as well as a Brooke Bond tea advert on the window. Tram lines run along the road and the electric cables are suspended on iron poles standing on the pavement. Electric streetlamps are just visible on the far left. A car is parked at the nearside kerb.
