This week we looked at the history of Coatsworth Road . We worked with Kate who showed us three different maps of the road one from 1862, the other from 1899 and the most recent 1921. We looked at how more houses were built in order to keep up with the growing industry.
We then moved on to looking more closely at the shops on Coatsworth road and Kate was able to take us on a virtual tour of the road using Google maps. She also showed us some shop fronts and windows from different periods and we were able to compare them with the picture we have taken.
