Althorp Street Northampton

The 1st Battalion was billeted in private homes in late 1914 and early 1915. This photograph shows a group of soldiers from D Company at their billets in Althorp Street Northampton. The photograph is well known and recently a photo was discovered which had been used as a postcard and included the senders address - Althorp Street. With the aid of Google maps the street and house was tracked down!
