Curzon Road

Looking across Curzon Road, Hurst, from the corner of Cedar Street. Opposite is Alfred Street leading to Diamond Street and Bengal Square.


  1. Our coalman John 'Jack' Hough lived on Diamond Street in the 1950s and 1960s. A few days after each coal delivery, my dad would give me the coal money and I would cycle to Jack's house to pay him - I think it was number 11. I might be wrong but I have a memory of Diamond Street being untarmaced in those days.

  2. Hey this is nice! I like the fact that you captured shadows!
