Looking along Cumbergate from a location that would now be inside Queensgate with Boots store ahead of you on the right. Date unknown but presumably early 1970s.

Edward Law’s Saddlery, Cumbergate

A lovely old image dating to the late 1890s or very early 1900s and showing Indian born Edward Law’s Saddlery Shop (centre) with the Post Office building to the right. In 1904, the shop building was leveled to allow the Post Office to extend to the left.


Crisps Wine Shop, Cumbergate – Wilfrid Wood

Crisps Wine Shop, later known as The Still public house, from a 1941 painting by urban landscape artist Wilfrid Rene Wood (1888-1976).

The building survives today as the Handmade Burger Company and the access way in the background would, today, lead you into the Queensgate Centre.
