St James' Square  -  1956

The small and medium sixe copies of this photo have been taken from the Scran web site, but this copy has been taken from a print produced by 'News and Dispatch' for exibition.

The print below has been cropped more tightly, but is better quality than the images from Scran.  More detail can be seen, e.g. in the buildings, the police box and the clock tower.
