Me too! A great shopping centre then and to think the Market Place goes back centuries.... Even the 'peasants' had to buy foodstuff and such! ( bet it stunk a bit though in those days)!

Me too Ron,life was a lot simpler..everywhere was cleaner,people had more pride in how they looked,there was no druggies around every corner,people were more caring to children and animals..I'm not looking through rose tinted glasses I'm sure,I think the majority of people will agree.

It looks not much changed in 1972 from when I last knew it in the late 1950s. Its good to to see a busy town centre.

Couldn't agree with you more, Maureen. And the corporation buses were still there in their Cherry and White livery!!!
