The High Street

This photograph of the High Street was taken in 1918.  The clock was erected in 1887.  The shop that is behind the clock (look to the left of the clock) is Nixon & Jarvis, Bangor's oldest stationer.  If you look carefully you can see a lantern above a doorway across the road from Nixon & Jarvis.  This was the doorway to the Liverpool Arms, an inn of considerable importance during the first half of the nineteenth century, when the London-Holyhead mail coach and a number of stagecoaches passed its doors each day.  Sadly, the building was demolished in 1987 :(
