Harry Rutherford's Festival of Britain Mural
Great view. The tram is outside what is now the Joshua Bradley - there is a boundary stone in that wall - Hyde Chapel can just be glimpsed. The trees on that side have almost all gone now whereas on the left you can actually glimpse the pond and Pole Bank Hall. Both are now totally hidden by the trees that have grown up on this side of the road.
This must be one of my favourite views from the old post cards.. Then again Pole Bank as always been close to my heart.
Agree with Tom - this is a lovely bygone shot. The postcard is for sale on EBay at the moment if anyone's interested.
