Loughborough Road, Quorn, early 1900s

Loughborough Road leads north out of Quorn, towards Loughborough. This view from the very early 1900s shows all the houses on the right-hand side of Loughborough Road, from Barrow Road up to the far extent of the houses in that direction.

The first house that can be seen on the far right is now no 31 Loughborough Road, which is on the corner of Barrow Road. The six houses, numbers 31 to 41, were known as Beacon Terrace. The final house in the picture is no 65 Loughborough Road, which at this time was owned and occupied by the Facer family.

As with many old postcards, this photograph was very faded, but using enhancement techniques, it was possible to make it much clearer and reveal more of the original detail. Below the full picture is an enlargement of the distant street scene. Two men can be seen working on opposite sides of the road, with a horse and gig being driven along between them. Two ladies are walking on the pavement on the right.
