  1. It was Maritime Street on the 1899 map. From Garbut Street there was Brown Street then Maritime Street running to Hunters Lane. Off Maritime Street there was Oak Street leading to the Saw Mill and Pottery. Then bay Street, Carrol Street, Paradise Street, a cut through to Paradise Row, Tees Street, Union Street, Commercial Street, Garden Place and Hunters Lane. It was altered when the houses where cleared and now runs from Norton Road to Church Road.

  2. I DO BELIEVE MARITIME ROAD HAS BEEN EXISTENCE PRIOR TO THE THE SLUM CLEARANCE OF THIS AREA. THE DIFFERENCE IS THE COURSE OF THE STREET OR ROAD BEING ALTERED

  3. I think Maritime Road was built in late fifties or early 60s during redevelopment of the area. The railway was still operating until at least the early 70s. The route of the North Shore branch can be traced from Google etc. aerial photos. Maritime road runs broadly parallel to it, just to the southwest.

  4. Was there an earlier Maritime Road please, the 1899 ordnance survey map has the North Shore Railway where the Road seems to be today, thank you.

  5. This mural of a steam locomotive was located on the corner of Norton Road and Maritime Road. It depicts a Bayer-Garrett locomotive of innovative articulated design. Once commonly found on colonial railways but rare in the UK. This locomotive, was the sole example of the type operated by the London & North Eastern Railway.
