Good Evening All.
A little piece of useless information, we were passing through this pleasant place en route to my daughters and, as we were quite early, I had a haircut - I was spoilt for choice as I counted 9 Tonsorial Parlours!!

I think the council's road sweeper should get a medal - or didn't people drop it in those days?

A Side issue I guess but these establishments seem to have sprung up all over we have an equal number in my home town.
When we moved here 50+ years ado - finding a decent 'cuppa' was a challenge and somewhere to eat no chance except the 'chippy' now at the last count
at least 50 eateries of varying ethnic diversity.
At one time where there had been 2 'chain' jewellers
suddenly we had eleven- but no longer- about 3 I think.
Is it a 'immigration thing' I wonder?

I look at images like the one in the link, and see no street markings, virtually no signs, no yellow lines or meters, not a TV aerial in sight.

How our towns have changed over the years.

I wonder if any one could fool us into thinking it was an old photo- taken on a digital camera?
They could just by chance have wandered into a market town whilst a film crew were making a period piece.
Yellow lines blacked out - signs removed or disguised folk in period dress- NO LITTER-
Hmm -how long before some one takes up the challenge
