Looking down this (now busy) street in Edwardian days. No motor vehicles, no traffic lights, no one-way streets, no guard rails, just a lot of sombrely dressed people going about their daily business and able to cross the road in perfect safety. The horse-bus conductor nonchalantly surveys the pedestrians. Exact year not known but likely to be between 1909 and 1913. The building housing Soper’s Emporium is of course still with us today. West Street is the turning on the right.
