Date:March 1964

Description:The camera is looking east along The Boulevard (formerly Station Road) from just opposite the Memorial Gardens and Tunstall Library is the large building on the right. Greengates Street is off to the right. At the far end are the buildings on High Street. The view is different today, with the widened A50 (Scotia Road) cutting across the centre of the photograph. The buildings beyond the junction still stand with the route through to High Street pedestrianised.

Tunstall Library building was previously The Victoria Institute and public baths (on Greengates Street) and built in 1889. It is a grade II listed building. On the left hand edge of the photograph is part of the old Palace Picture House.
