    on tweeter today from rob baker (linkage) - dated 1952

    consensus seems to be that building at the right of photo is carlton mansions when it was the end of a terrace (1950 map here)

    Think the top and bottom ones of Acre Lane are taken just near the Timber and Builders Merchant. First one is a little further up the road. Hopefully this link shows where i think it was roughly taken from Google Maps. Shops on the right are now the tyre repairs, DIY store and a Paint shop. The white pillars on the right helped place it.

    Yes, I'm pretty sure it's Coldharbour Lane with Carlton Mansions to the right.

    ricbake working out how

    This was taken from Gresham Road - can see through to the houses on Bellefields Road, across the gap where Blue Star House now stands
