Victoria Place 1933 Decima Street

Thanks to paperboy for help on this one, his mothers recalls the area before redevelopment in the 1930s.

Victoria Place could be found at the far end of Decima Street directly behind the Ship Public House in Long Lane and on the left in Wilds Rents when entering from Long Lane.

It would seem Victoria Place when demolished was replaced with a block of flats ( see picture ) although the buildings to the rear in Long Lane are as shown on the 1878 Ordnance Survey Map.

I understand the Ship Public House has now closed and turned into flats but the old Ship sign still remains
