    Any attempt is better than none !
    Large gable end, presumably with a track or passageway between the buildings. Cobbled street with very wide pavements.  Got to be Whitsun with all them nice new clothes.

    Someone has no doubt scribbled 1861 somewhere and it has become "factualised" even though incorrect.

    Just to nudge this along a bit; five House Points if you can name the Licensed Victualler mentioned above the Family Gr.... sign. (It's a Beerhouse, not a public house).

    I know the answer and everything I've guessed at so far is completely wrong. I'll shut up and let other people try to untangle the problem.

    Florist maybe ? 119 Broad Lane - don't want to distract from other ideas. Townhead/Broad was just a thought.

    Not entirely sure, but this has the feeling of Townhead Street .... perfectly willing to be wrong, just a thought/starter for ten.
