Albion Street

What we know about this image :

Looking west towards Stockton Street up Albion Street. The building facing in Stockton Street is John Pounder plumbing and heating store. The south side of the street was already cleared when this was taken. The number of prams suggests that there were a lot of young families in the street at the time !


The photo was from a photographic record of the Central Area of West Hartlepool prepared in 1955/6 at the request of the Town Planning and Redevelopment Committee 'in the hope that it will be of interest to future generations of West Hartlepool'  

The record focuses on areas which were within the next ten years to be completely redeveloped following The Max Lock Plan. It was compiled by WL Taylor and photographs developed by Thomas Clarkson Chemist of Tower Street.
