    But where was this, and maybe when? It doesn’t look to me like the corner of Whitechapel and Richmond Street, but I could easily be wrong.

      You are quite correct Gordon. It was around the time of the above photo (1959?) that Rushworth & Dreaper moved from Islington to Whitechapel. I’m happy for any readers to provide any further info to add to the post above. Many thanks.

        The photograph might have been taken earlier than 1959 because overhead tram wires are visible, and the last Liverpool team ran in September 1957. However, removal of the disused wires would not have been instantaneous, and they might have been still there in 1959.
