The building, with 2 narrow gables, (premises of Elton the butcher) is on the site of Bond's shop, which was formerly Mr William Joyner's. On right of it is No 122 (deep roof) and then the smithy. Here comes in Broomhill Road. Then comes Nos 118 (at corner, here Miss Sarah Wells had her shop), 116 (policeman in front) and 114 on extreme right. (Miss Sarah Wells gave up her shop in 1905).
