An image of an unknown lady. I believe she is possibly a street seller, maybe bread, in Stockton High Street. The fancy building in the top right is now the HSBC Bank, 136 High Street. When the image was taken it would have been the London Joint Stock Bank and would later become Midland Bank. The building next to the bank is still identifiable, the upper window shape and the arched brickwork above is still visible in the building today. Interestingly Milburns, 134 High Street, was a druggists and was on the High Street between 1906 and 1912, so gives a fairly narrow date. Note the ‘ghosts’ in the background, people who have moved while the shutter was open.
