Old Balloon, Balloon Street

Former location of Old Balloon, Balloon Street. (c) googlemaps.

Balloon Street is tram-only these days but in the 1800s the Old Balloon public house stood on the street, precisely where the 'A' is marked on the above snap [1].  In those days Balloon Street was a mixture of residential and commercial properties rather than the grand municipal buildings of today.
