In their way I find them more fascinating than those ancient photographs from the turn of the last century.
I think it is partly because we tend to ignore more recent images as somehow not really history and that is a shame especially as they can provide a vivid commentary on how things have changed in the last half century.
So here in 1958 in Needham Avenue are three young men beside a fine example of a Foden’s lorry.
The building which was once the bakery belonging to Mr Needham is just there to the right.
