Photo was taken from point X which was at the corner of Plantation St and Park St.

The arrowed row which contained the St Leger Pub had already been demolished as had one side of Law St.

The Co-Op Joiners was on the corner of Birtwistle St & Law St and amongst other things made coffins for their own Funeral Dept. A friend of mine who was an upholsterer with C.D. Pierce tells me that as a lad he wheeled coffins from the Co-Op to Pierce`s on a handcart for the fitting of the linings. Pierce`s at that time was in Gillies St -- the building under the word "TEXT " on photo.


Thought this may be of interest as it shows the cleared site.
The occasion was the Church Parade for the then new Mayor,( the late Bill Parkinson.)
