Date:May 1964

Description:Looking west along South Street from the Cowen Street corner. The terraced houses on the right date from the late 19th century, whilst those on the left were municipal housing built in the 1930s. Before the 1930s, South Street didn't exist, the terraced houses opened out onto open fields, which became part of the 1930s housing estate.

The old street lamps have been replaced, but overall the frontages of the houses have remained the same. On the chimney stacks are the old 405 line VHF television aerials.
