Easton, Bristol, 1970.

Looking down Gladstone Street, Easton, from close to its junction with Easton Road, Friday 1st May 1970. The left-hand side had gone by January 1972 and the houses on the right had followed by the summer. Easton Way, part of the council's stillborn Outer Circuit Road scheme, was constructed across the foreground during 1973. Further down, new housing came on the right and a school on the left.

The lady is perhaps returning from an errand to one of the shops then surviving in Easton Road ...Bindon's the ironmonger perhaps. On the newly exposed interior walls of the houses, fireplaces, wallpaper and the outline of cupboards, floors and stairs may be seen.
