The photographer's notes state: 'Looking S.E. from the same view-point as the above photo. The old weatherboarded building on the left is numbered Nos 77 (nearer) & 79. The next building in the centre is No 81 (see above photo). The small building adjoining it on south is on the site of the northerly part of the old Bethesda Chapel building. Between it and the mordern Anchor and Hope on the right is where the road Aynscombe Angle comes in. This road is on the site of the southerly part of the above chapel building and the passage to Chapel Yard and the yard too'. [The 'above photo' refers to BB71/09496]
