Came across this postcard on eBay and decided to look on google maps at how that scene looks now..

Fascinating...yet another example of "if it's old pull it down" perhaps.?

Looks to me like it was 'in the way' when they developed that area - the corner of the cottage looks to be right on the edge of the modern road

Yes, it looks like the cottage would have been in the front garden of the terraced house, or even out into the pavement.

Quick mock up in Photoshop - I'm putting the front door of the cottage just inside the garden of the end house (on the left in the modern photo)
