THIS week we take a look through our ‘street scenes’ archive.

The search reveals some interesting and atmospheric pictures, often from unusual angles or lesser-seen locations.

One particular photo shows Queen Street, behind Le Mans Crescent in 1934. The police detention home on the left of the picture was built in the style of a house, and is so well-scrubbed as to look almost like a film set. The building still exists today, with an extension to one side.

Elsewhere we see get a glimpse of some condemned houses and evocative back street shots.
