Street scene Middlegate

What we know about this image :

The photo is taken from Friendship Lane looking east up Middlegate. In the distance is a pile of coal delivered to the Borough Hall and this was quite a common sight in the town when there were coal mines in South Durham. Probably taken in the 1930s. The building on the right with the fancy brickwork was Barnett Brothers and is still there today. On the left is The Ship Inn which is still there also.
