    It is the village of Old Crosby in the foreground. The 2 roads snaking away are Normanby Road on the left, and Frodingham Road continuing to Ashby Road on the right.

    You can see the old Scunthorpe Cemetery in the centre of the picture and I think just part of the Old Showground on the middle of the right hand side. The Scunthorpe United football ground, as was.

    This area of Crosby and Scunthorpe was laid out on a grid-iron street pattern, with 'ten foots' running between them at the bottom of the gardens.

    In the upper left you can make out a similar pattern of streets,being the houses built by the Frodingham Ironmaster for the workers, known as Frodingham Village. Just to the right of those you can see more Ironworkers housing(slightly later) which is the area of New Brumby.
