The St Vincent's area is where the crofts were sited, what i find sad about any old photos like this one  is the thought that even though they look happy their lives were a day to day battle and worse of all they are all dead. The photo shows Queen Street leading to Scotland Street.

Queen Street looking towards Scotland Street and junction of West Bar Green. Premises of S. Waterhouse, Queen Salt Works, Salt Merchant, No. 121 and 123 and Greens Hairdressing Saloon, right.jpg
