Junction Belevedere St;/Rosemary St.

Junction of Stockwell Gate/Belevdere Street/Rosemary Street.

Photo taken at the junction of Belvedere St;/Rosemary St;/Sutton Road, across from the Old Empire Picture place (Cinema in todays world). Around the late 60’s/early 70’s I took this photograph and it may bring back memories to the Mansfield folk of the, and the business people who served the town in that era and before. It was very kind of the people who added their comments on a previous photograph of the same junction looking up from Stockwell Gate of which I submitted showing the old Empire and to the “Mansfield Lad” Alan Bridges this is for you thank you once again your comments were well received on my previous contribution. Hopefully people may remember who ran these shops .

  • Another brilliant photo from the sixties Graham. I used to cycle through this junction every day on my way to work at the post office telephones/B.T. on the corner of Portland Street and Quarry Lane (it is now a gym).
    I can remember Handley’s furniture shop and recall it being empty for a long time. Just out of shot, to the left, was Nuttall’s barbers and round the corner from the furniture shop was Taylor’s confectioners with the A&C Sports cycle shop next door. I can remember the shops opposite before they were demolished, but I can’t remember what looks like a temporary car park where the white car is going.
    The VW beetle takes me back, it was the first decent car I had and I loved it.
    In the area where you took the photo was Radford’s barbers, in my minds eye I can still see the father & son in the shop cutting hair.
    I wish that I had had the foresight to take photos of old Mansfield, they are wonderful memories.
