The picture is taken from Chester le Street West near Murray Road and Cookson Terrace. The bottom of the picture shows the tunnel under the railway line from Murray Road to Horners. We can also see Chester le Street Front Street, Bridge End, Picktree Lane, the Cong Burn leading to the River Wear, Cooperative Street and Victoria Church of England School. A prominent feature is the 106 foot chimney with Horners written on it, and Dainty Dinah toffees picked out in tiles. Horners confectionary factory was famous for Dainty Dinah and Blue Boy toffees. The factory trademark was the head and shoulders figure of Dainty Dinah. The factory was situated on Foundry Lane, continuing along Horners Alley to Cooperative Street and as far back as the railway line.
