Old picture of "Broad Street"

Broad Street in 1949 was in relative terms as busy a center of business as it is today.
On the right is the old Palace Hotel which stands on the site where Abacus House, formerly Williams House later stood at 132 Broad Street.The contrast between the calm of the street in 1949 and the intensity of today's traffic is most telling.
