The Old Toll Bar house at 329 Langsett Road between Woodland Street and Victor Street

This building still stands but the front extended part was removed when the road widened

Also shown on the extreme left is The Victoria Hotel, later called Victoria Vaults. This pub closed in the early 1970's.

The road line appears to be the same so I would suggest the front part of the building was removed to allow the footpath to be made up to a normal width.
