Re: East Lane

They certainly look like the same cart and the same location - even the same trees! I've never seen one of a horse-drawn sarsaparilla cart there before - do you think it would it have been George Barnes back then?

Re: POLLOCK ROAD.

I think this is Pollock Road?? as far as I can remember Palatinate Estate was on both sides of Pollock Road. I think the caption's wrong and right. It is Lion Street, but I don't think the Palatinate extended to Lion Street. The gap was where 55-83 Chatteris Square had stood, and the nearest block ...

Re: MYSTERY-DO YOU RECOGNISE THESE PLACES?

The houses are №s 17 and 19. I think the sign at № 15 is that of the company trading from that yard, and un...
