CLEARANCE AREA IN WEST STREET
These photographs show the extensive clearance of many old buildings prior to the erection of the Sports Stadium, in 1933. In addition to a number of old shop premises in West Street, no fewer than 29 small houses in Little Russell Street, Little Russell Court, Kent Street and West Street Cottages were swept away.
This and the following photograph shows the area cleared by the removal of houses in Little Russell Street and West Street cottages. Note the backs of 4 houses in Russell Street, the end one of which was the old public house “The Fisherman at Home”.
