Boar Lane (City Centre) (3 comments)
Black & White image10th March 1943. Looking west along Boar Lane from Duncan Street, across the junction of Briggate and Lower Briggate. Tramlines and overhead power cables cross at the junction. The modern frontage of Saxone Shoes is on the right. Next door, on Boar Lane, two men on a trestle are working on the shop frontage. To the left is the Fifty Shilling Tailors. At the top corner of the building is a sign for James Mc Lean, turf commission agents. To the right of the tailors, a hand cart, with lorries, vans and cars on Boar Lane. The Austin lorry in the centre advertises Golden Shred marmalade. Traffic lights, road signs and hand rails are at the junction, which has blackout markings on the curbs. There are many pedestrians on the pavements. Trinity Church is visible above the building on the right.
