A fine picture of the High Street, you can see the tower of the Royal Hotel, but I am not familiar with the other structure that is rising above the tree on the right hand side of the street. Does anyone else?

(Harry, it's a telegraph pole carrying telephone cables. It matches the one opposite which can be seen just left of the fountain in the middle of the cross-roads. - Site Admin.)

The poles in this pic and also pics 426, 428, 429 and 446 were not telephone poles, but carried the supply and fittings for the street lighting of the period. Telephone service to High Street premises was supplied from poles in Clyde Street and Joss Street.
