Long Causeway (c.1905)

A busy scene on Long Causeway around 1905 with a Walton Tram returning to the city centre terminus. The image highlights the impressive width of the road which arose from it originally having a stream running down the centre of it.

An early sales invoice from the store of Tom Lawrence Barrett incorporating a wonderful scene full of artistic license given that his store opened in 1893 !

There were two Barretts stores on opposite sides of Long Causeway at the Midgate/Westgate junction ….. this would be the store on the corner of Midgate (left) and Long Causeway (right).
