This view of Old Commercial Road (now Lord Montgomery Way) was taken in about 1920.

The grand water company building at the far end was built in 1883 and is sometimes credited as being local architect AE Cogswell’s first commission.

A landmark building, it was demolished in 1970 to make way for the new road system in the city centre.

The four-storied Charter House, on the right, has dominated this road since it was built about 1900.
