This is ''A'' Yard of Bricklayers Arms Goods Depot, in about 1970, showing to good effect just how vast the area was. This is a westward view - the former main engine shed complex, at the end of the branch, was about ¾-mile distant. Rolls Road to the left and Dunton Road Bridge would have been behind the person taking the picture. I remember it well.
Two of the three high-rise blocks on the Avondale Square estate are seen here: West Point and Centre Point. East Point can just be glimpsed behind the building in the foreground.
These are the Tower Blocks you can see from the railway yard.
