Second pic down is DEFINITELY the building the mystery photo was taken from.  Look on the right you can see the lantern on the corner of the curved building.

Go to beaconsfieldbuildings.com and click on new piccy's on the right side.

Good evening again,

Freeling st is now in 2 parts, the small part to the west looking at the Beaconsfield Buildings with Gifford st  and school beyond. See other thread. The photo is taken looking east and everything from the pub on is now gone and replaced by a huge modern estate.

The far end of the picture is Caledonian rd going across the end of freeling st, that bit is still there. What I thought was a railway must have been a roofline now gone and replaced by modern shops.

The steeple is St Andrews Church on Bridgeman rd. The other little tower thingy is on top of the west library also in Bridgeman rd. You can see both on google maps st view, plonk your little man on the junction of Caledonian and Bridgeman rds and look east.
