    On the left of the image is the remaining gasholder, No3. The brick building in the middle of the image still exists. This was the booster house to transfer gas into the gasholders. The two older gasholders have been demolished at the time of the photograph, but the semi circular retaining wall can still be seen. In the distance, on the other side of the beck, can be seen the stores, garage and main booster house. In the background the ‘Middle Primrose Hill’ terrace which was later demolished.
