Shopping , boxing and getting creative at the library – it has all happened in Prince Edward Road over the years.
These photos from the Gazette archives show a span of scenes from the 1950s to 2014.
And what a change of scenery we have seen in the street over the decades. We’ve got Stollidays grocery store from 1959 right through to fundraising at the Childrens Society shop in 2014.
There’s a reminder of Louigi Minchella’s ice cream shop and from the day the manager of the Sainsbury’s store got in the saddle for a sponsored cycle in 2013.
Want a reminder? Here’s 10 retro scenes to get the memories going.
