SPOTLIGHT
Number 2 - Main Street

In this view we are looking along Mexborough Main Street towards its junction with Hartley Street and Lower Dolcliffe Road. Once you've magnified portions, you can pick out much fascinating detail, such as Axon's bootmaker (8/6 and 10/6), or Dodd's joinery business. There's even a man up a very tall ladder in the middle distance. It's interesting to note there was a post office there in those times, and just behind the cameraman and on the left was the site of St George's Church.

Remember, to magnify portions of the photo, hold down your left mouse button and move the magnified portion. If you cannot see the photo, you need a current Flash player for your browser.
