Back Street of East and Gladstone Streets, c.1962

Eric Johnson took this set of photographs recording the damage caused to houses in Gladstone and East Streets by the collapse of mine workings c.1962. This is the view looking up the backs with Gladstone Street on the left and East Street on the right.  The gas and water mains were broken in several places and the road had to be dug up.
