    U 771. This bus belonged to The Worcester Electric Traction Co Ltd who also ran the trams. The chassis is by Brush of Loughborough, their C type or "over type", with the driver seated above the engine. The bodywork is probably by Birch Bros, London. It was new in 1908, but the body is later, probably 1910 when it came to Worcester. The picture must be after 1910 due to George V on the post box. John Bennett, Loughborough. I have another picture of this bus if you are interested.

    An Alladins Cave of china. The family run shop had stacks of china and porcelain on tables. Sadly the family retired and the shop is now a toy and games shop.

    Main building on left side was originally the Deanery, but had been converted into a shop.

    The building showing at the far end of Lich Street was the last house in Sidbury, until that section of Sidbury was named as the continuation of Friar Street.

    This image shows one of the Caryatid figures that once held aloft the porch of Parks Turkish Baths in Sansome Walk, Worcester. They disappeared some time before the early 1950s and the baths themselves were demolished in the 1970s to make way for the Local Authority owned Swimming Pool.

    The Audit Hall was another name for the Guesten Hall which stood to the south of Worcester Cathedral, and the ruins of which still remain. It was demolished in 1862 and the roof is now at Avoncroft Museum of Buildings having been initially reused as the roof of the former Holy Trinity Church.

    This photograph is of the gatehouse lodge at Perdiswell Hall (the gatepiers onto Droitwich Road still stand). A copy of this photo was shown to me by a relative of the lady standing by the fence - she was referred to as 'Granny Harper'. Thomas Harper, labourer, is recorded as living in the lodge in 1908, according to the Littlebury's Trade Directory.

    Replaced with new building on opposite side of College Street, near Lich Gate.
