Chippendale Street is located between Nos. 223 & 225 Castle Boulevard. At the time this photograph was taken, September 2004, the first of these properties housed the Crusty Cob Sandwich Bar.  The property on the adjacent corner was up for sale after the closure of a short-lived beauty parlour and now [2007] houses an insurance brokers.


Externally the two rows of terrace properties that constitute Chippendale Street have undergone remarkably little in the way of major changes.  The window frames and doors may not be the originals but, these apart, the buildings must look much as they did when they were erected in the 1880s.


This photograph from the late Reg Meakin's album shows two boys, Fred Norris and Percy Carey, in front of the latter's home, No.16 Chppendale Street, on Good Friday at seven in the morning.  They are about to go off and sell hot cross buns.
