Old Photos of Witham

Bottom and wide parts of Newland Street looking east

Taken: 1908-1910, Ref: M2953

The bottom and wide part of Newland Street, looking east. The clock is on the left, affixed to the old Constitutional Club. This makes the photo’s latest date 1910, in which year the Constitutional Club burnt down. A good view of the club.
Continuing up the left side, left to right, after the Con Club, is 88 Newland Street, Beards’ ironmongers (with table outside), 86 Newland Street (three windows in row, looks like man on steps), 84 (single storey, Post Office with the main telegraph pole in the street outside.
Single frontage, 64 Newland Street, facing down the street, just right of big telegraph pole.
Right hand side, not very clear, though more work could clarify it.
Man in cart, probably lady in trap, man and wheelbarrow, and bicycle, on the road.
