WHEELOCK STREET TOP END (2) 1969

Here's the companion view to our previous one (link below) of the top end of Wheelock Street from the opposite direction, with the Crosville single-decker all present and correct on the right. Above it is the present day 'Cabin' (or 'T'riffic Togs', or something), but we have somehow contrived to confine this shot to buildings which are still in existence. In 1969 nobody really knew what was going to go and what was going to stay so, for all we knew, the whole scene might have disappeared. To the left can be seen the long frontage of Douglas Williams Electrical, in the gentlemanly hands at that time of Harry Jackson, and, right in the middle of the shot, is the Cafe (now closed) which was once the home of one of  the town's doctors' surgeries.
