Art of Siam and Animal Lifeline, Church Street, Newcastle-under-Lyme

This is the top of Church Street where it meets Newcastle High St at Red Lion Square. The ‘Art of Siam’ replaced a Tudor timber framed building once occupied by the ‘Three Tuns’ public house, Clement Wains original chemist (which moved over the road) and Moody’s Saddlery. The former two storey building with its four east facing gables and deep first floor bay windows was demolished in the late 1950’s.

‘Animal Lifeline’ has a date in the upper timber frame of 1888.

No 5 Church Street, occupied by Mr Dicks gents clothing at the time of this photograph, summer 2013 and caught just in time for posterity by this drawing. The next time I passed, the shop had closed. However, the gentleman waving is immortalised along with his shop –  see photo below.
