    Gerard. This Torr Street looking down towards Clare Terrace according to Mandy. It's from a whole bunch of photies taken in that area in 1993. See it on an earlier posting on this thread and replied to later by Mandy.

    These flats are in the Bishop Goss/St Josephs area at the bottom of Scotland Rd.










    St Joey's in the background.




    More on Chaucer St..The next photo shows the opposite end of this block.





    Notice under the windows where small balconys were and have now been filled in.






    This block is on Grosvenor St..I took these next few shots for Pete who I met while taking photos on St George's hill..
    Pete lived in 16b which is the top left corner...Eeee Rrrrr Pete Lad ..















    Mike,I hope this is the kind of Interior shot you are looking for and it helps you out mate.

    The corner of Burrough's Gardens and Limekiln lane.

    The flats built in the early 1950s and demolished in 1992.

    The private Wimpey flats, Kingsway Court which replaced them in 1993.

    Default A mixture of housing.

    St. Martins cottages, the first municipal housing in Europe feature here on Silvester Street (1869-1977) next door is Archbishop Whiteside School with the church at the top of the picture.

    To the far right, the next housing on the picture to be built in that area following the slum clearance programme were Portland Gardens in the 1930s (Burlington st tenements which stood opposite them were built a decade earlier but are not on the pic)

    The lower, three storey standard units and the maisonettes of Ashfield st, Silvester st and St. Augustine street came next in the early 1950s followed closely by Blenheim and Tatlock towers (Blenheim shown here)

    Yes, it's a cr@ppy pic but you can only go with the technology of the time i'm afraid. It's best if you click the pic bottom right and enlarge it a bit.

    I don't know the reason for the red doors, but now there's a big white marquee on the nearby wasteground. The doors on the front have little lights in them...should look nice in a night-shot.
