Victoria Terrace

Victoria Terrace

A wonderful view of Victoria Terrace in about 1900. In those days the residents would have a view over open farmland to the front. Note the gentleman in bowler hat and tail coat standing in the road talking! Obviously no buses or speeding traffic; and note the iron railings are still present. To the rear was once a candle factory or tallow house, it was closed in 1871 when East Crescent was being built, because of the foul smell emenating from the boiling fat.
