    Default Derby Square - Old Vaults

    1) Photograph of a series of old vaults at Derby Square, 04/11/1903. On the other side of the fence, there is a tram whose destination is Castle Street, Breckfield Road and Seaforth. On the side of the tram there is an advertisement for Kardomah Tea.

    The photographs of the vaults [above] are dated 4th Nov. 1903

    The Monument to Queen Victoria, Derby Square. The foundation stone was laid Sat. 11th October 1902 and the statue was unveiled, Thurs. 27th September 1906.

    The vaults, whereabout in Derby Square though? I don't know, maybe some clues below?

    Photo 1) A tram car can be seen over the fence in. And also the very faint shadow of some windows can be seen beyond that. ie: The tram tracks pass between the building, in the distance, and the vaults. This could be either the centre, or somewhere on Preesons Row?

    Photo 2) shows a neighbouring property, with sash window above ground, so this may rule out it being in the centre?

    Great them. Any connection to the castle perhaps? Or just cellars of property that was once on Derby Square?
