To me, it looks like 124. The 4 appears very similar to the 4 of the address above, as does the 2.

Hi steeles39, welcome to Rootschat  :)

To me it looks like 174.  I don't think the middle digit is a 2, it doesn't look like it is formed in the same way as the 2 in the groom's age or the 2 in the marriage date at the bottom.

The last figure is probably 9. Compare with the bride's age of 19 years.

I see 174 and that was my guess before I saw Jool's response.

I would agree with A. Chesters, and say that it is 124 Prescott Street.  The first address is 42 Benson Road.  Both the "2" and the "4" are written the same fashion in both addresses.
