A couple of interesting photos showing the back of the buildings along Victoria Road.
You may recall a similar view of this section of the Vicky I posted back in November 2010, but the difference is, on last years, the buildings were all empty - on these 2 photos here however, there is evidence that they are still being lived in.
The pictures were probably taken around 1970ish, so they didn't have that much longer to go before the arrival of the bulldozers.
The top photo shows the segment where it joins onto Idvies Street.
The image below it is further down a wee bit going towards Wellgate, with the tell tale sign of life - the washin' hingin' oot!
Not quite sure what the small building in the foreground beside the lampie is mind you, because I don't know what address it would come under. If it's in Charles Street then the only place that crops up in my 1970 directory on that side of the street is D. Todd, a coal dealer. Could be - could no be - hopefully maybe one of you will be able to nail that one.
