Hi All
 Carlow  you've got a photo of Middlepath St .The photo was probably taken from  the bottom of the N'ards road// Bridge end.
The railway arch you see is at the junction of Grahams Place.As you look down the gateway at the end of the houses was Kingsbury Coal depot.This must of been taken as the street was being demolished because of the gap in the houses towards the car and van
 
                                                                           BE

I used to work with a Peter Lawler back in the late fifties in the Bridge End. I believe he was from Middlepath Street. I remember him telling me that he had lived in Canada for awhile and little did I know then that I would end up over here in Canada myself.
