Description:This postcard view is largely unrecognisable today. Looking from St John Street with Bird Street straight ahead over the junction with Bore Street (signed to Burton on Trent) on the right. As can be seen, the clock tower originally stood near this junction but the area was extensively redeveloped around 1928 and the clock tower was dismantled and relocated to its present location at the far end of the newly built Friary Road which was cut at this time.

This “Derwent Series” postcard was published by W H Smith & Son. It was franked in Birmingham on 27 August 1908 and sent to an address in Malvern.
