A view of Dyke Road and Prestonville Road in the 1870s. This area started to develop about 1850. The houses at the left had all been built by 1855, and were then known as 1/7 Peel Terrace. Most of these buildings still stand, though in a different form, as they were long ago converted to shops on the ground floor, with Barclays Bank at the triangular corner. Selbourne House at the right, for many years occupied as a private school, for both boys and girls, did not change over to full commercial use until 1933 when it became Gas showrooms.
