View from Spital Bridge (1960s)

Coming down off Spital Bridge on Mayors Walk and looking ahead to Russell Street in the distance with Westwood Street crossing left to right. Today the road would hook right to meet up with Bourges Boulevard at the Fire Station roundabout.

GNR Moulders Strike (1913)

A small group of moulders march defiantly in strike action in 1913. Unclear as to where this is but the bridge in the background may be Spital Bridge thus making this Russell Street.
