I'm having a guess that this is West Street!

Am I right? Is this West Street?

Hi there, I support 'surrjohn' in his findings, as I have just looked up for sure the TYSON STEEL and FILE CO, it is DEFINITELY FITZWILLIAM ST.

Compare the two photos below - especially the streetlamp, chimneys and the guttering arrangements - Bowdon street

Here's a 1952 map of the area - it shows the Jews Burial Ground at the right on the photograph, also the two entrances are marked in the right places.

I think Edmund  is correct with Bowden Street, it looks like the back of Tyson's, the front of the property was 151 Fitzwilliam Street as listed in the 1938 Ironmonger Diary and Hardware Buyers Guide.
