yep.

if you take into account the foundation stone, and the two openings, its little wonder it was confusing doing research on this :-c

Joanne - I agree it does look sombre,
but then the weather is miserable.

Just add this in here as well. (supplied by Malachy Havern)


This has appeared elsewhere, but we now know it was part of the 2nd baths opening parade.

Having looked again at some photos already on site, I am pretty certain that this photograph (originally posted in the war section) is in fact also part of the parade with Lord Wimbourne/Wimborne.

EDIT: maybe not - could also be part of a recruitment drive

Just noticing this now Joanne, I think that this pic shows the gap in Queen Street that would lead you to Parkside. The house is too wide to be Haverns at Church St/lane.

If you are talking about photo with Carvills shop in it then that is 100% Church St.Remember it may seem to wide because it has only one front entrance,in later years it had house and shop entrance.
