A view looking towards Darlington Street from Queen Square.
To the right stand the public conveniences and the Prince Albert Memorial, erected to commemorate the visit of Queen Victoria to the town in 1866. Also to the right is the National Provincial Bank of England Ltd (now Natwest Bank). To the banks's right is Green & Hollins the outfitters and Philips & Jones the house furnishers .
The distinctive minaret of the Hippodrome Theatre can just be glimpsed further down on the right. To the left are the premises of J. Lyons & Co. Ltd with a delivery van outside, the Shakespeare Inn and Reynolds Restaurant.
Further down Darlington Street (at the junction with Victoria Street) lies Tyler's the boot shop and Johnson's Dyers. Further down Darlington Street are the front towers of the Methodist Chapel and the spire of St. Mark's church in Chapel Ash.
The presence of the two double-decker motor buses and the considerable number of motor cars in the image, helps to depict the fact that by this time, powered vehicles had more or less replaced horse-driven vehicles as the dominant form of transport.
