Stratford, East London!
Never seen that before - it’s barely recognisable. Is that the original bank building that’s now Baan Thai restaurant?
Not sure what it is now, not been down there for years, but that is the old bank building. I remember the Moor foot being loads and loads of car parking in my younger days.

Yes, with the S&E Arcade next door, then Lex Brooklands the Volvo dealer. They used to have a written off car in their showroom window, from which everybody had got out unscathed, to show how safe Volvos were.

Steam and that heady malty smell coming from Wards brewery. Occassionally you could walk all the way from the markets to the bottom of the Moor with first, Whitbread's Exchange brewery and then Wards, filling your nostrils. Ahhhhhhhhh (better than that Bisto bollocks).

Post #12,267 shows Cemetery Road coming all way down to the bottom with the other bank (Barclays?) that is now a Chinese firework shop. You can also just see the gable end of the Lansdowne pub.

1946-47 season?
Believe your on the money again SB. According to the bible Feb 8, FAC 5thR,won 0-1 and Harold Brook the scorer in the second half. It's the only game of that period where the players match. Believe programme has United's full backs the wrong way round, normally it was 2 Furness, 3 Cox as it shows in the bible although It could have been a Davidson tactic as Fred was quite nippy and their No. 7 was more than quick.

Yes Midland. Then Robert Brady’s, now Baan Thai restaurant.
And interestingly retains its old address. 1-3 Ecclesall Road. (confusing for taxis sometimes, as I've had people before ask for Ecclesall Road, then when on it, I ask how far up, and they say not sure, it's called Baan Thai)

I've been scanning my old photos (done about 50 of 1000) and found one of the old S&E...
