Anyone who has tried to cross the road from Trinity Church to the other side during the rush hour well testify to that.
But for JBS who sent this picture postcard on July 12 1905 at 3.30 pm Chapel Street as she experienced it has long gone.
I can’t be sure but given that the card was addressed to a Miss Smith of 78 Wellington Street, Batley, I think we can assume she was from Yorkshire.
And the rest as they is up to the curious to match her lost Chapel Street with ours today.
