North Street, Stockton c2017

When I saw the recent post of North Street c1980’s I recognised the buildings straight away as I often use the Wellington Street car park which strangely enough has North Street to it’s north! So, some thirty years later on the 1 July 2017 I went along and found that one of the featured buildings is now a gents hair stylist, barbers as was, whilst the rest of the row is easily recognisable although some of the window positions have altered and their frames are now made from upvc rather than wood. It’s nice to see that the original street nameplate is still in position and made from stone unlike the later enamel or cast metal ones or even the pressed steel or plastic ones of today . Interesting too is the width of the houses, I’m assuming that North Street and Bishopton Lane were built back-to back with the only access through a front door?
