The photographer's notes state: 'Nos 91 (nearer & with gable) & 89, forming block on the right, east side. At the back of the motor vehicle is the Black Boy pub. The yard, not visible, set back on right. Just beyond the old wall on left is the block Nos 82 (nearest), 80 & 78 on west side. Glimpse of the lofty railway viaduct over the street in distance'.

There is also an additional note stating: 'Nos 89 and 91 badly damaged by enemy action April 16 1941'.

The yard just to the south of the Black Boy hotel (close to the parked car in this image) is now the west end of Mountfield Way.
