The photo id for this photograph is 1096, in the Around the Area album.

Furness Vale

This photo was sent in by David Easton with the following information:-

I think this was the 1940's. The Soldier Dick was a Gartsides Brewery house. A sign at the corner of Station Road points to Bell's Brewery's Station Hotel. The phone box is the old K1 concrete style and the Co-op was still single fronted.
This is another black and white image from the History Society collection, digitally coloured. I can only make a guess at the colours of vehicles and houses although the tones of the original image do give some guide.
