The today photo of Dunstable Street is taken slightly North of where Fisher would have been, however this is necessary due to a pelican crossing that would otherwise dominate the view. Several of the houses can still be identified, in particular the old forge to the left of the picture with its ball finial on the roof. The painting, oil on canvas, can be seen on Wikigallery.
