This is a great old photo. The more you look the more you see. Look at the young lad in the fore ground.... to the left, wondering what the rest of the locals are looking at. There's a street name on the left hand side...... any guesses??
Update 26th Feb. 2012.
This extract from Booths notes of London shows Rowley Street was somewhere close to Barnes Alley and I presume Queen Street.
