Prince Street (1913)

This image dates from 1913. In the foreground you can see the terminus for Williamson’s buses. The left side of the street hasn’t changed much, apart from the former Woolworths which was built in 1924.

But in 1944 a World War Two bomb hit Foley’s Café as well as destroying the Britannia Hotel on the other side of the street. Further down the street Shaw’s Premier Amusements is a classic example of a 1970s ‘Vegas’-style amusement arcade.
