Southgate actually starts as Wards End which starts at the end of Commercial Street and follows the curve around the corner and doesn't really change into Southgate until the first junction(bottom of Alexandra Street).

Southgate looking north before 1890. Immediate right is entrance to Westgate. Just beyond this is the White Horse Inn. Then came a barbers and then an umbrella hospital Albion street, then the Greyhound Inn which was demolished in 1892 to make way for the Borough Market.
