Victoria Street in the 1920's. On the extreme right, on the corner of the top end of Ainsworth Street are Hunter's Tea Merchants. A little further left is the Maypole store and then Althams, who were also a tea merchant/store. Beyond the tram, is the impressive looking Crown Hotel and then the junction of Cort Street, just a little further along.
Facing these properties and out of shot, would be the canvas covered stalls of the Market Square. This photo would have been taken from the foot of Lord Street.
