From the survey of 1914 by the Royal Commission on Historic Monuments.

Left to right, part of 143 Newland Street and 145 Newland Street (brick, two stories, white gable end), 147 Newland Street (left of horse and waggon), ??? Newland Street (probably no number, behind horse and waggon, windows in roof), 149 Newland Street (shop window, Ellis), 151 Newland Street (house, right of Ellis shop), signs for Swan public house (‘Cyclists’ rest’ etc.; Swan is 153 Newland Street, out of photo on right). Numbers 149-151 were described by the RCHM in 1914 as ‘cottage with two shops’.

The original RCHM Record Card for these buildings from 1914, contains rather more about their structure and history. They were Witham Monument 35. I think the cards may now be held by Historic England in Swindon.
