This view reinforces Borough High Street's status as a commercial and industrial centre and as an important transport artery.
Note the insurance office and the baler (or pockets) of hops, hop merchants being the distinctive trade along the high street.
Note also the dominance of Field & Son, Estate Agents.
This view looks south from an upper floor of the Town Hall Chambers at the junction with St. Margaret's Hill. c1926.
