Greetings Ian, is transition to other street....

No, Bulbas, not originally. This was the street! Once upon a time in Yarmouth, the herring boats would come in and the boys with their handcarts would wheel the fish ashore. These alleys were just wide enough for the handcarts, and for the wind to blow the smell away.

Later they developed into notorious alleys for muggings, ambushes and many other criminal acts. Now they are of historical interest, and allow transition from one street (where you parked your car) to the shops (where you go about your business).

just to clarify. the 145 rows in great yarmouth were numbered and some were given names of either people that lived there or using the name of a business so rows could be identified. these rows were never called scores as seen in photo. scores were the names of the rows in lowestoft.
