    I knew Beau Street was off Fox Street near the Friary, in fact it's still there, a very small part of it. So when I got a copy of Beau Lane in 1935 I knew it must have been nearby. I was wracking my brain thinking what the big building was at the end of the lane until I consulted an old map and lo and behold, it's only my old school, Bishop Goss. The pic is looking towards a then much narrower Cazneau Street.

    Beau Lane has now gone but here is the nearest comparison I could get to it.
