    The 'street' with long building in BG with sloped roofs is the Queens Works factory of W H Allen & Sons Ltd. Manufactuers of diesel engines, turbines, pumps & generators. Allen engines were on the Titanic and many other navla vessels, water works, etc and all over the world. I served my apprenticship at Allens & still work for the company, unfortunately the works site is now housing
