Zetland Road Loftus

Taken from a George Skilbeck postcard view of Zetland Road, giving an excellent view of both Arrowsmiths memorials on display and the windows of Knaggs shop in the premises in the present day occupied by the Opticians. Can anybody assist with a date for this image?

    Though it is in view, I can’t identify the shop front but can confirm that 19 Zetland Road was H & P Tyler, Boot and shoe shop; still trading as such as late as the 1960’s. From 1910 to 1934 it was managed by my Great Grandfather James Alderson Colbeck who’s grandson Edgar Colbeck in 1928 began a five year apprenticeship across the road at Arrowsmith Monumental Masons.
