Black Country Bugle
Terrace -lined street is now just a memory
SOME streets remain for centuries, some are wiped from the map as the urban landscape changes with time – while others live on in name alone.
King Edmund Street in Dudley, for example, can still be found in Eve Hill, just off Salop Street, but not only has all trace of its buildings gone, the road itself traces a different, shorter path, lined with all-new housing.
Here from the Bugle collection are a couple of scenes from 1959 and 1960, showing that busy, terrace-lined street as it had looked since late Victorian times.
