​The Township had to wait a further 30 years before modernisation began to take place, but in the meantime parcels of land became available for building. 
One such piece of land was a small triangular croft known as ‘Wootton’s alias Langley’s’ Croft’. In the mid-1750s this became the site of a 29-property development incorporating a new street called Queen Street. 
This exhibition looks at the growth and change of Queen Street from the mid-18th century to the mid-20th century.
It complements the exhibition which was held at the City’s Art Gallery in 2018, but focusses more on the historical elements of the street and its people, and is based on the work of a small group of steadfast researchers who spent many hours discovering the smallest pieces of information about the street.
