The Hare and Hounds public house in East Street. The public house and all the houses closer to the camera were demolished in about 1967 to make way for the extension of Girling Street down to the Belle Vue roundabout. The shop with the narrow frontage next to the car (with ‘Sillitoe’ above it) is now the last house in East Street. It housed Jack Sillitoe’s print works at the time of the photograph.
