Looking south along this street, from York Hill, on 12 February 1967. This was one of several streets laid out on the New England Estate during 1850 and 1851 to house the workers at the neighbouring Railway works opened a few years earlier. Until the early years of this century there were houses also on the west side but they were swept away in 1905 when the Goods Yard was extended. They are now under sentence of death, many houses being already boarded up, and soon with several adjoining streets New York Street will be removed for a comprehensive redevelopment of a large area.
