BOSTON STREET REDEVELOPMENT AREA
The demolition of Elder Street in progress, 1959. The west side of the street had been cleared away, as well as Elder Row when this photograph was taken. Together they show the stark simplicity of mid-Victorian working class houses, the builders’ chief object seemingly being to cram as many dwellings as possible in a given space. In the photograph the houses see, from left to right, were those numbered consecutively 48 to 66 with the long blank wall the rear of Wilmhurst’s premises in Elder Place. Both photographs look toward New England Road and the Viaduct.
