The images were taken on August 26, 2008 in Orwell Road and, no doubt

Derby Road station up to Foxhall Road.
"Dear Borin, I was looking at your site and spotted Orwell Road, as we
lived there I had to find where Jones the Butchers was... Good
old Google, it was on the corner of Foxhall Road, town side... the top
of the roof and the window looks the same as well as the back of the
house and the bush, I have a 1966 Kellys Directory that states this was
a Green Grocers (314 Foxhall Road, Garrett, R.H. Fruiterer &
Florist) and my wife confirmed that it was a Green Grocers, we moved
from Orwell Road in '72. Hope this is useful Gordon (Pugh)."
