Puzzled by the photograph

Looking back through the messages and something in the photograph of the Co-op factories in Pelaw from 27 March has got me puzzled. |
If you follow the line of the main road from Bill Quay it makes a swerve to the left, runs past the factories, then before it gets to Heworth it swerves back to the right and the two road ends look as if they may have lined up with each other at some time.
I would imagine the road was there long before the row of houses which seem to sit where the road would have been.
I have been to the top of both of the factory chimney-stacks in the photograph.
It must have been about 1961, we fitted smoke density detectors to the stacks.
Surprising how far you can see from that height.
