    Default Great Charlotte Street - Theatres & Markets

    Two images, 129 years apart, of the same street, from the same location.

    The view today. Imagine you are standing next to the Royal Court theatre, facing the green entrance doors of St Johns precinct, with the Roe Street bus shelters behind you. That's the viewpoint.

    I used to go to the Fruit market there with me dad. It was a strange place. I remember the toffs in their evening suits coming home as we was loading the fruit and veg.
