l Have been looking at this pic for ages! Certainly looks like the Queens to me. In which case it probably is Pitt St. so that would possibly make the building A the Bethel Chapel? Can't for the life of me think what the other street is though! *???

It would have lead on to Bold St though surely?

The Bethel Chapel was last used as Marsham's tyres, before demolition.

Think the other street must be Bold Street!

Can`t remember time of year when it was taken -- perhaps it`s just one of my bad-uns, should have spent more time "tweaking" it but wanted to get it and a few more to Roy before he went to China.
Will not be around after next weekend for a few weeks as I am off on a special birthday bash.

Have a great time, whatever it is you have planned.
Let us know what you've been doing when you come back.

Not going to say "don't do anything I wouldn't do"!
Let your hair down and have a darn good time, matey!

We'll miss ya!

I agree with Cazzer! If you could see a bit more left, the old Associated Dairies (or Whitewell) was there!

B: Is, The Queens Hotel.
C: Is, Pitt Street

A Dairy was built on the old Park Shed site and now is the Eastgate Retail Area. Bold St originally went through to Pitt St but when the Dairy was built it finished at Park St as it is now.
