East Crosscauseway

This view looks across the street to the south side of East Crosscauseway.

The archway leads to Cowan's Close where Hope Cottage Child Garden was based.  There is 'Hope Cottage Child Garden' notice above the archway.

Maps now show Hope Cottage Nursery School to be at the south end of Cowan's Close.

Also above the archway there is a sign for Cowan Close.  The sign can just about be deciphered on the original negative.

Collection of Photos

The image  above is taken from a collection of whole-plate negatives.  The photos were probably taken around the 1920s.
