The Past & The Present

What our town used to look like

Mark found a great website the other week that I had been meaning to share for a while now. It shows a whole range of old photographs that had been taken of our town in 1944. I would love to be able to share some of the photos but you aren't allowed to download them due to copyright reason. If you would like to see them please click HERE. There's also a little video of the photos with Rosemary Blackley from the local historical society talking about them.

I really like the old photographs. Things looked less busy, less complicated and more laid back. Sometimes I wish that things still felt like that.
