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
