This picture shows nos 2-26 Lower Grove Street Leicester. It was taken from the back bedroom of 19 Grovesnor Street and buildings in Belgrave Gate can be seen in the background. These houses shared back yards and three communal toilets. The families in this photo were rehoused on Hand Avenue and Gallards Hill on the newly built Braunstone Estate in 1938 and the houses were demolished.
