Victoria Road then

What we know about this image :

Victoria Road, Hartlepool at its junction with York Road with Binns Department Store in the background. THe upper floors of the buildings on the left are little changed although the front gardens have gone. Apart from the first building which is still retail, the others on the left are now wine bars.

Inexplicably, the council demolished the beautiful terrace of houses on the right and replaced them with an ugly modern terrace of shops. The shops at the near right remain.

This image is pre. April 1953 as the trolley bus lines were removed then.
