The exact year of these three photographs is not known but most likely they date from the early 1870s, about 1872/3. They show two buildings but recently erected – Markwell’s Royal Hotel (now Queens) built in 1870, and at the far end of Kings Road, Brill’s Baths just one year older. Otherwise they depict a scene of a traffic-free, quiet but dirty Kings Road and an almost complete absence of people.
