I am inclined to agree with you but Euston Rd. Railway Station is not shown - or is to the right of the photo - could it be the building of the line?

I bet it is you know. If you see behind Thornton Road where Morecambe High is today. On the right of Morecambe High there is another big field. On the other side of this field is the railtway track with South road on the other side.

Part of station is shown, notably the large toilet block at the western end of platform one.

The Royalty Theatre, once known as The Opera House, was where Thora Herd's father used to work and where she first appeared on stage whilst she was still a child.

The Warship being broken up is berthed against, what we knew as 'The Wooden Jetty. The partially dismantled ship is berthed alongside the stone Jetty - the subject of much recent work.

Below the Clock Tower are the Ladies & Gentlemen s toilets.

Above the C.T. is the Tower Ballroom and Cinema - renamed after the war as the 'Gaumont. To the right of the Tower is St. Mary's RC church. St. Laurenceces church is to the right, and slightly above the Winter Gardens. The smoke - or steam - on the right hand edge and slightly above the centre of the photo is where the Gas Works were situated. To the left of this and slightly above - the seven peak building is Euston Rd School and the large building to the left is the P{opulton rd. Art School.

These are my recollections from the 1940's

Whats the white line in the top right hand corner. It looks like the same position that the railway line would be in that goes under York Bridge on Lancaster Road?
