Many thanks to Graham Hobbs for this image captured in 1964 of the top end of Lincoln Road where it meets Westgate.
Graham adds …. “this picture is of my father’s ‘Builder’s Merchant’ business. Clarke and Hobbs shop was at 5 Lincoln Road at the Westgate end. There was a warehouse situated at the back of the old Labour Exchange in Westgate occupying what is now the road that goes past the Brewery Tap. Strangely this shop is now the last building standing from those days in the 50”s and 60’s.”
