Remembering My Streets

A Glimpse of the Past
Gover Street - East

It is hard to imagine that this small section of leafy, residential Gover Street has, over time, been the location of not just houses but of doctors surgeries, corner stores, horse drawn trams, bakeries, leather goods and bicycles manufacturers.

The people who lived here have included lawyers and carpenters, turncocks and suffragettes, rabbis and spray painters.

This exhibition is designed to give a glimpse of that diversity.

Gover Street is not alone, behind the façade of all streets there are interesting characters to be found and stories to be told.
