Northern central Cheltenham looking west. The High Street runs in from the lower left side, becomes the Tewkesbury Road and goes out towards top right. Near the centre of the left edge is the Regent Arcade with its arched roof looking rather like an enormous brown log with a white end laid on top of the building. About 3/4 way up the left edge is the bright green area of the Cheltenham Ladies College sports centre. Immediately beyond that, the dark greenish line running across the picture is the old Honeybourne railway line, now a cycle-track and footpath. Beyond it a similar feature, converging with it to the left, marks the working railway line leaving the town to the north. In the top right corner is a large cluster of retail and industrial units. Just right of centre, the brownish area is the development site on the corner of Winchcombe Street and Fairview Road. Beyond that the Portland Street and North Place car parks are visible. Running in from the bottom right corner of the picture is Hewlett Road.

If you can add to the information here, please let me know.
