WESTERN ROAD – OLD AND NEW
Of these four photographs,(JG_19_144-148) the odd one out is that at the top right (145), a 1924 view from opposite Woolworths old premises and looking towards the “Dawkins Dardenelles”, so called because of the extreme narrowness of this stretch of road. The three others are all post-1936, after the widening on the north side had been completed. As to their periods, I think the two on the left date from the late 1930s while that at the bottom right (147) has the look of the 1940s or early 1950s. All show the halcyon days when private cars could park in Western Road.
