Below is photo just before demolition of what looks, from the stone facing round the windows, to be the same building, though doorway is different. Not sure when demolition was , but the second photo I think probably shows that same doorway to the right of the photo, and is dated 1910,

Easy Row to the left, Paradise Street straight ahead. Not sure of the date of this one, the ‘Wakefield’ of Bellamy and Wakefield just visible. The business looks in full swing judging by the window displays.

Some nice examples of (gas) street lighting. This certainly looked like a well-to-do area of the time. Maybe it developed that way as a result of the trade/business generated by the nearby wharves. Viv.
