Thank you, Ell. I had wondered quite where Eagle Foundry had been.
If you enter "Easy Row" in the Search box (top right), it shows a number of East Row thread, including the following:
Unfortunately the pictures on several of these threads have not yet been replaced.
This map from 1795 shows it quite well. I do have maps and auction particulars for Easy Row in the 1860s (complete with who bought each property) - my husband's great great grandfather went to the auctions and the papers have survived! Maybe one day I will get round to scanning them all and adding them on here!
Viv re pic 4 one of those shops used to sell violins and cello's when I lived in William St . Which ever one it was there used to be a back from a cello or double bass attached to the door , whenever I walked around this area as a kid it just seemed so right that the posh people as I called them worked and lived here .Thought I’d revive this thread with few historical images. The first three must be around 1950s/60s - maybe someone can be more accurate

Then we’re very familiar with Phyllis Nicklin’s 1960s view.

And finally a sketch produced in the 1950s - a travesty that the terrace was lost. Even then it was recognised as an important row of building. But alas, the Inner Ring Road won on that one. Viv.
