THIS week’s picture does not go quite as far back in time as some of the photographs we’ve shown, but it does offer a not-so-recognisable look at a street which still exists to this very day. It is also not very seasonal, with the amount of bleak snow covering the land. It is Arthur Street, in Sheddens, and the time is around 1939. In fact, in 1939 most of Europe was pretty bleak as the Allies fought the vice-like grip of Hitler’s forces. This picture shows the end of Arthur Street, depicting the joiners’ workshop. Changed beyond all recognition now, Arthur Street is home to houses and small businesses.
