Thank you Peggotty, you have filled a gap with your information. Perhaps my Dad repaired Len's wireless, as he worked just across the road from Stella Tyre.

I have only just caught up with this 'conversation': my mother was born at 13 Gooch Street in 1915 and moved to 186 Gooch Street about ten years later. Looking up Gooch Street (North) from Wrentham Street, the only works of any size was Hawkes Looking Glass & Cabinet Factory at the top, where Gooch Street met Bromsgrove Street. Looking up Kent Street from Hurst Street the Baths should be identifiable on the right - after Gooch Street crossroad. They were given a make-over in 1930 and had an art deco front. If the Stella picture is of that area, it has to be Lower Essex Street - but I am not convinced. Of course, the major snowfall of post-War times was in the 1946/7 winter. Benacre Street was off Gooch Street (South), more-or-less opposite Barford Street. I will post a plan of the top of Gooch Street in 1895 (a page from my book about my mother's early life).
