61 Bridge Street

History of 61 Bridge Street


On the right is are the railings of the Round Church and the junction with Round Church Street with 10-11 Bridge Street on the corner. The railings have gone, probably removed during WWII. The spire of St Clement’s is in the background. On the left is a row of shops demolished by St John’s College in the 1930s (they are still marked on the 1925 OS map) and the entrance to St John’s Street. Nearest to camera is 61 Bridge Street (Singer Sewing Machine Company).
