Gladstone Street/Taverners Road (c.1910)

A wonderful scene marked as with bicycles sharing the road with horses ! Marked as Gladstone Street but it does look more like Taverners Road with Gladstone Street crossing left to right with the Post Office on the right.

Gladstone Street (c.1908)

Looking ahead along Gladstone Street with Taverners Road crossing left to right. The Post Office on the left is still there in 2014 and is still the local Post Office !
