Union Street

The junction of Union Street and New Street
This picture was taken in 1974 by the noted campaigner for preservation of St Helier's architectural history, Andre Ferrari. He comments:'This entire row was demolished for the Hue Court development soon after. In subsequent years the entire rest of the street up to Bird's Bakery on the corner of New Street was demolished in piecemeal redevelopment. Only the house on the left remains. Shops that vanished included Seward (books I think), and Le Mart which was an Aladdin's cave of household goods. The next corner was Wellington Furnishers, and just a door or two up a builder's yard in the former St Jude's church. All now gone. And who knows what lanes and yards existed behind the street frontages? '
Boot and shoe maker and repairer J Dale was at 13 Union Street from 1903 to 1939. This picture was taken in about 1915. In 1955 the premises were occupied by H J Perris and in 1964 by Perris and Squires
