Before the days of helicopters and drones a church steeple or high hill provided a "birds eye view" as in this shot. Lurgan appears a well developed town with industry and institutions aplenty back when this shot was taken.
Thanks to today's contributions we know that the photographer captured this from a high vantage point on Lurgan's Shankill Parish Church (COI)
, looking north - along the aptly named North Street - towards St Peter's Church (Cath)
. We have yet to refine the date significantly, but it's obviously before the removal of the gas holders off Ulster Street....
