Editing this to add a niggle in the back of my mind, with no evidence, that there may have been during 60's/ 70's, a form of small weighbridge on the corner there.

Maybe nothing, may have been on one of the other corners.

From the looks of it (2nd floor, false window spaces) I'm guessing this is quite old. I'm also guessing it might have been a Pub?

Here it is on google streetview - its on corner of brassey and patten.

On the 1875 map.

Checked out Kelly's and found entry for a Christopher Newhouse - dairyman. Also mentions public weighing machine!

Here's a better map from 1875 with "w m" marked for the weighing machine.

So what was the weighing machine used for? A primitive form of WeightWatchers?

The size of some these days, they would probably break it.

assuming a weighbridge is the same as the weighing machine in question

I guess the Newhouse family got board of dairy smile More money in coal.

That was fun - finding a random building - working out where it is/was, finding its use and its occupants, and comparing it to the present day. smile
