Agreed, Brian - the sunlight raking the textures makes a magnificent picture of dereliction. That's another one for the book...Cracking pic of the front of the houses in #472 - Very reminiscent of my last days in Hockley - There were just 2 families left, side by side with half a house at each end, all forlorn in the midst of a demolition site! At least we could see our house from half a mile away - nothing else standing except the White House!
Mikejee your picture shows All Saints School in the middle next to that post, you also have All Saints Rd on the extreme right. I have attached a copy off google earth showing All Saints school circled red and where I think you was standing when you took the picture, circled blue.The aerial photo in post 440 was taken in 1939 and does not show gable-ends close to George St West. In 1940 the "top" shed was built which had gable ends identical to those in the photo (see https://www.warwickshirerailways.com/gwr/gwrhd677.htm , which also includes photo). Proof of the presence of this is also in the picture below taken by me at a time close to that of the original picture of the houses. The end of the shed shows up well. this would agree with the picture of the houses being George St west.
Nice picture. I hadn't realised that Scott's use a rare spelling for their oats: 'porage'.In this picture looking up Pitsford St, you have Icknield St going under the bridge and Carolinas photo is of the building that is behind the car parked on the right. (the 2 storey building). Hope this helps. This photo was taken from the corner of Warstone Lane cemetery, you can just about see the fence.
