The west side of this small street, from Edwin Place to Somerset Street, in 1960. The grocery shop of W.T.Hall, at the corner of Somerset Street, was a very old established business. Although advertised as “Established 1867” it was older even than that. It is listed in W.J.Taylor’s Directory of 1855 and is thought to date from 1850. The commercial building between the streets was of recent origin. At the time of the photograph only five inhabited cottages remained in Edwin Place where at one time there had been twenty-six. All buildings have since been demolished and the area cleared.
