A 1905 view of of Railway Road, or Station Road as it was back then. Taken from Salford Bridge, the group of people to the right would have been stood on the White Bull corner. Beyond them we can see the railway station in the distance, the corner of The Adelphi Hotel, Telegraph House with its dome on this side of High Street and the canopied shops down to the corner where the Hake Boat chippy would eventually be.
With the exception of Telegraph House, if you were to stand in the same place as the photographer did back then, you would probably get a similar view today.
