the houses on the right hand side of this street would have been built at the same time, by a builder using the same plans and details on every property. The photo shows a terrace of 10 dwellings numbered 12- 30 and a terrace of 5 dwellings numbered 32-40.
The smaller terrace was demolished and replaced with the properties as seen on Google Maps. The photograph was taken from where the garden of number 9 is now. The shrubs on the hill have grown. I planted a 6foot hawthorn in 2005 it is now 30 foot tall.

Better still if carr could show us on Google street where he/she thinks this picture was taken then that would answer the concerns I have with the picture.

No flame war intended by the way just that previous what/where's tended to need more than a I'm sure it's here to put it to bed. :D
Hi Tabbycat, please see pic below, courtesy of googlestreet. I have tried to get as near as possible to the original photo but the depth of field is a little longer.

Slightly to the left and further back than MiggyBill's modern picture https://goo.gl/maps/MhPN88RkinN2 but it illustrates how the houses on the left aren't visible in the original
