Musgrave Street/ Lynn Street corner

What we know about this image :

Taken on a rainy day in the late 1950s, the image shows a No.4 Corporation bus which would turn along into Lynn Street and finally weave its way to Thornhill Gardens (as on destination board), having come from Rift House.

The Benefit Shoe shop is on the corner of Lynn Street and into Musgrave Street is Ernest Wilson, Charles Dickens Tool Store and The Piccadilly Bar. Charles Dickens was one of the last buildings in the area to be finally demolished in 1978 and was the last to trade in  the area.
