Series of photos taken in 2009. 30 Hollybank Avenue had been demolished and a small housing estate built on it. It was at the end of the Avenue and joined 30 Cherryfield Avenue, yet the houses were accessed from different roads. The photos show what may have been the original entrance on the Cherryfield side and the new houses that are now there.
