I must admit movement can add character to the composition of the picture. I know a great deal of these photos repeat themselves but I find that if you study the detail sufficiently you get a feel for what the street really was like, in the one we have been discussing, Buttermarket street was so narrow and if you look carefully you can make out the Crown & sceptre followed by the Fox Inn both on the left, not sure yet what the pub is on the right with the lamps though.

White Bear 28 Buttermarket Street - No Inkeeper but a brickmaker and his family plues some other labourers lived there.

 

Rope and Anchor 34 Buttermarket Street - Inkeeper Gilbert C Risley

 

Kings Arms 52 Buttermatket Street = Inkeeper James Rigby
