It looks like the lantern at the first junction says "Police Slow"
I might have to do another portion...the latest was scanned at 1200dpi.

I agree Weste  ::)

I think Frank is right - does look like ElizabethII on lampost - so probably Coronation 1953

And the boy looks to me like he is wearing a check shirt and slipover - quite 50s.

And here are the people by the shops and a close up of the end of the street.  Does it look like a dead end?

And here is a close up of the odd tower to the right of the steeple. Could it be a smaller tower on the other end of the church maybe? Or is it a different building?

Thanks so much...I think there is a bunch of flags near the people on the right....It looks like dead end and that could be another tower!

Excellent! What an impovement the new scan has made! Is it able to be improved even more?

Still unsure about the end of the street being a dead end - I thought it might be a T junction? So frustrating not quite being able to read those signs.

And as I said at reply #65, look at those trees, if this is London, then surely it has to be parkland in the background, also what is the curious vertical item rising from the trees to the left of the spire?
