This is looking along Starkie St from the Penny St end. The photographer would have been stood (approximately) at the junction of Moor St, sort of where the ramp that takes you up onto Thwaites car-park starts (behind The Fleece pub). In the distance, where the people are, we have Cleaver St off to the left and to the right, Vicar St. Standing here today, you would just see Thwaites Brewery all up the left hand side and at the far end. Turn right at that end, the only way you can turn these days, and you come out onto Salford, where The Veteran pub and the Salvation Army Citadel are.
