This central area, only a short distance west of Hove Street, was undeveloped open land until a comparatively recent period. Princes Square was the first to be developed and by 1923 the three houses shown on the east side had been built. Later a start was made with Princes Crescent the first house being one built on the east side in 1925. Willett Ltd. built most of the houses in the Crescent. In this photograph of 1925, men are clearing the ground for the building of the first house on the west side. Princes Avenue, seen on the right was built a year or two later.
