Imagine how much nicer this was than the messy car park on the Old High Street is now.
The picture shows the building that I have always called The Greedy Pig! At this point (1960s) it is a Post Office. It is next to Mack’s which has long gone.
Curiously to the left of Mack’s is Dickinson Bros. This was later the car show room at Shell at Over Square (where Spar is now).
This picture shows the bottom of Wharton Hill and the way that the traffic over the Town Bridge used to be two-way outside the Red Lion. You can see the road become the High Street at the top of the picture – now, of course, the Old High Street. All buildings on the left of the photo have now long gone.
