Cheers Fogbrain, that is brilliant,once again you have come up with goods. I had tried for ages to locate just where these two places were and had just about given up. :D

Thanks, Kiwi, I surprise myself sometimes.
I was more surprised though to discover that the houses on the right (of which you can only see the window sills) survive. And surprised also to see that some front yards are separated by brick walls, albeit with sloping tops, but others by railings as they were before WWII.
This is the nearest that GSV gets to where the photographer stood on that snowy day outside № 32. There are trees there still, but much younger ones. There is still a telegraph pole, but again it is most unlikely to be the same one - they don't usually last more than about twenty-five years.

I’m almost certain that this is the Spa Road Bakery, can anyone confirm before I post it into the Spa Road Topic, Cheers.
