Lovegrove Street was right of Joe’s café, but now exits in St James Road and is now a gated road.

The Swan Pub was opposite Pages Walk, and the road to the right in 1911 was called Swan Place. This part of Pages Walk is now called Mandela Way and Swan Place is now Preston Close.

The snap of the shops on the OKR brings back a few memories... much pocket money spent in ‘Stamps’ on OO model railway stuff and Airfix kits in the mid to late 70’s!
