Byng St looking towards Alpha Grove 28/12/1995

In the 1950’s on the right hand corner of West Ferry Rd i think may have been a small builders, then a couple of houses then the long wall of the back of Binks’s Wire Rope Works down to 4 or 5 houses at the Alpha Grove end. On the left backing on to that near wall was the backs of a row of houses in Tobago St. This Lenantons shed was previously Bellamy’s Tank Makers.
