Ship Street or is it Victoria Street Brighouse Town Centre - Then and Now

Ship Street 1968

Ship Street  c 1968 - Below is the same Ship Street - 2010. This street was previously known as Victoria Street as can be seen on the map, which is c1893, I have no information to indicate when the name was chanegd but I doubt whether it would be in Queen Victoria's life time. This street dates back to the early ninteenth century. Further research could even reveal it to be older than that, judging from some evidence I have seen.   The origins of the current street name are linked to the Ship Inn, which was on the corner of Canal Street with Ship Sreet and is now the cafe 'The Secret Tea Rooms'. The illustrated 'Old Brighouse' map, which is A3 size can be purchased at the Secret Tea Rooms.
