So while pictures from the late 19th and early 20th centuries are fascinating often everything is so different that it is almost looking at a different landscape.
But those from say the 1960s onwards are often almost the same but not quite, and with this in mind here over the next few days are some from the camera of Jean Gammons all taken in the late 1970s.
And that is all I shall say,
