Here are the O.S. maps from 1904/1910. Couldn't get them all on the same page. On the first map, Albert Place is at the top & Union St. at the bottom. On the second, Union St. is just below centre & Spring St. towards bottom right. My father's family was from that area.

Many Thanks for the trouble you have gone to.It helps me a lot with my family tree.

Interesting that Union Street has gained a dog-leg since those days.

Could be a traffic calming measure, the amount of traffic that cut through from Old Chester rd down to New Chester rd is quite heavy, Possibly gives better vision leaving Brougham Ave and Cobden Ave. The dogleg appears mainly where the little housing estate is.
