Totterdown, Bristol, 1973.

A view looking down from Wells Road to Bath Road, Totterdown, with Totterdown Bridge in the left distance, Wednesday 3rd March 1973 (see below). I think the houses and shops in Wells Road were mostly still standing at this date ...though they were all to be demolished during the next couple of months... and the shadow at the bottom edge must be that of buildings on the main road. The kerb is that of New Walls Road. Down below, a cluster of doomed buildings remain at the foot of what must be Angers Road. One looks as though it might once have been a chapel.

 

My thanks to jaseheeley, who has provided a modern approximation to this view at:
