An Aerial View
Here is an excellent aerial view looking over towards Union Street . It was taken circa 1987.
See the Bricklayers (bottom left) when it was still operating as a public house. On the middle-left of the picture is the "Tin Mission" church hut which was so named as it was literally a Tin Hut. This has long gone and is now a car lot. Also on here is the Crook Street Central Methodist Church (middle) and the Old Central Methodist Church building on Norfolk Street behind it. The latter has now been demolished. The bottom corner of Crook Street/Reynold Street where the shops stand are now flats.
The photo was given to us by John Hopwood who has given us many great photos which we will show you in the not so distant future. Thanks John!
