Long before it was Beech Road Park it was the “Rec” and depending on which name you use marks you out as a newcomer or a local.
Now we have always called it the Rec and so do all my children which I guess says something about us.
Of all the pictures of the Rec in the collection this is my favourite and I have to own up it’s because it features our house.
The date on the postcard is 1933 and the path running along the inside parallel to Beech Road has long gone.
Otherwise apart from the size of the trees it is a scene not so different from today.
