They all look to be taken in the same area, Albert Street.

All the photographs appear to be of Albert Street.Mansfield. The Black Swan was built in 1790...The Tram Tracks lead along Nottingham Rd.

Photo 1, 2 & 3 are of Albert street. I'm not 100% sure, but 4 & 5 may be at the top of West Gate.

An enhancement of photo 5 shows my initial thoughts to be correct, the name on the wall reads, Victoria Hotel, that'll be the original place, demolished in about 1920. So all 5 photos taken from almost the same standpoint at the top of Albert Street.

I now have to agree with Berisford, and say that all the photos are of Albert street, photos 1, 2 & 3 are on the same side as where the Portland Arms pub is situated. And 4 & 5 are opposite, on the same side as where the Victoria pub is.

The Viaduct says it's Albert Street.....The Black Swan says it's Albert Street. The street name plate says it's Albert Street. There is no doubt it's Albert Street....Alan
