Britannia Terrace, old postcard view (Morley)
Black & White imagec1924. View of a section of Bruntcliffe Road/Britannia Road, part of the Wakefield - Bradford Road, called Britannia Terrace. The terraced housing is typical of the building in Morley between 1870 and 1910, many of which were demolished in the 1960s and 1970s. The homes seen here are built in brick with Welsh slate roofs, and are back-to-back. On the left is the Cross Hall Wesleyan Chapel on Bruntcliffe Road which was built in 1878-79. The first house to the right of the Chapel is number 1 Britannia Terrace and numbers continue right in an odd sequence. A sign for an off-licence corner shop is just visible and this marks the junction with Fountain Street. This postcard is one of a series by Preston for Fountain Street Post Office. The Tram route turned left into Fountain Street at this point in Britannia Terrace. Photograph form the David Atkinson Archive.
