Re: Wilson Grove

What threw me was I assumed the building in the middle was a pub but couldn’t remember or locate any pub being just there in Jamaica Road,so went with what it said, Wilson Grove.

Spa Road Sewer, man conducts maintanence work 1951. This is one of my grandfather's co-workers; I don't think it is my grandfather, although I have only seen one photo of him. The photo was taken in Thurland Road, with Spa Road behind and Frean Street in the distance. Nothing in the photo survives ...

Re: OXLEY STREET

Hicks' is certainly the smithy shown on the map, facing west towards Holy Trinity Church. Oxley Street was not quite on the same alignment as the Wade House access road; it was slightly to the south and ran through where the right-hand side of the hairdressers now stands and the bit of Wade House to...

Re: MYSTERY-DO YOU RECOGNISE THESE PLACES?

Sorry for the delay! Didn't realise it was so long since I was here.

Bottom one is Spa Road, the procession arriving at the junction with Grange Road.
