A selection of pics from Northampton in 1973
Traffic chaos at the old Banbury Lane level crossing – now replaced by a bridge. We used to go out there and watch the trains fairly often. For many years I thought there were no trains on Sundays because that’s what my parents told me – presumably so I wouldn’t bug them to go out there on Sundays as well…
Some from the Borough Show in Abington Park.
And one final one – dear god what the hell are those trousers??? Putting a 5-year old boy in those nowadays would probably constitute child abuse. Especially with red sandals. Home-knit jumper by the looks of it.
