Definitely not Monmouth. Street names/patterns and railway sidings all very different

This is a shot of Abergavenny Brecon Road incorrectly identified as Monmouth.

This is an image of Abergavenny and not Monmouth.

This is definitely Abergavenny - the railway bridge in the top middle is spanning Chapel Rd and Brecon Rd, plus goods sidings opposite where the Cantref Inn is now.

I agree. I'm not convinced that this is Monmouth! The street layout doesn't look correct and there appears to be a railway bridge (top centre) - the two lines that ran into Monmouth had stations on the outskirts of the town.

Is this Monmouth - does not look right to me? It looks more like Abergavenny with whats now Linda Vista Gardens and Castle Meadows in the forefront?
