It’s always interesting to come across old photos of your home town. If you recognise the location you study them closely to see what’s changed, cars being the telltale sign of the era they were taken.
This selection of images is ‘rescued’ apart from the one below which was taken by a family friend. Notice the Benson and Hedges cigarette billboard in the distance. Whilst cigarette advertising was banned from television and radio in 1976, it wasn’t until 1989 the law was passed to ban outdoor advertising.
