About this photo

The tram lines and the traffic have long disappeared, and now Abington Street is pedestrianised. Today, most of the buildings date only from the 1960s and 1970s - the street looks better in this photograph than it does now. On the right is the Notre Dame School, founded by two sisters in the mid 19th century. The school closed in 1975, and the building was later demolished.
