I think that it could be Dalton St. looking towards Memel St., Bridge End . I was a Co-op Milk boy around there, 1944.

[                       /quote]                                                                    Not a bad guess there Barry. Looks like Laganview St. looking towards Memel St.

Bridge Ender.    In 1944, the house at the corner of Bridge End and Dalton St. was a "British Restaurant"  We had morning tea there as we delivered them milk.   These restaurants were set up by the Government to supply cheap meals, 24 hours a day, to anyone and help the war effort.    There was another one corner of Ann St and Victoria St. on Blitzed ground.
