Water Tower on John White,s mill in centre.
Actually,, the street opposite the high rise block is Brookhouse Street and all the buildings shown in this picture are still there today, bungalows were built on the spare ground, in the foreground of the picture, on the corner of Brookhouse Street and Warrington Lane, but the bungalows are addressed to being in Brookhouse Street.
The high rise block in the picture is 'Brookhouse' and the picture was taken from the 'Woodcock House' high rise.
Hardybutts is to the left of the picture shown.
Just realised the house where I was born is on this photo. in Spring Street. I wonder if there is a blue plaque on it???
Ron Like you I realise the house I was born in is in this photo as is the John White tower in Kent St
As a kid, I remember John White's mill. I thought it was funny, because underneath the name it said 'Waste Manufacturer'. I've since realised that they produced cotton waste which was used in factories for cleaning machinery etc.
Ron,if there isn't a blue plaque..there should be..you deserve one for putting all these photo's on.
