1978: This view is from Town Hall Square to property on Devonshire Place.

The houses were of a type called "blind backs", entrance only from the front but without a corresponding row of houses abutting the rear as with "back to backs".

The small lower doors led to cellars which were used for laundry and storing coal, there was no internal access down to the cellars.
