Beetwell Street in 1965. - Alan Taylor

Beetwell Street in 1965. The buildings on the north side of the road have been demolished for road widening. There were butchers, pawnbrokers, watch repairers, fishmongers, hairdressers and tobacconists along here. Quite a few buildings survive on the south side, including the Spread Eagle, which dates back to 1479 and was at one time a coaching inn.
