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…
Not the sort of thing you stumble across in a field too often…
Some from the Borough Show in Abington Park.
The building work in the Town Centre continues, with the public still not suspecting how awful it’s going to be.
A summer evening at the pub – the Britannia on the Bedford Road.
One from the front garden at home, showing the cherry(?) tree in blossom – it just *look* 1970s doesn’t it?
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.
Pics from our summer holiday in 1973 – a trip up north, which will have been to stay with my father’s parents near Hull. We went a bit further north, as well.
The Transporter Bridge in Middlesborough – to be honest, until I saw this I never knew I’d been there.
A couple for any Dr Who fans out there – an exhibition in Stockton-on-Tees. Not sure whether they supplied a sofa to hide behind.
One of me and the Brother with our father – no idea where we are!
A great piece of 1970s fashion sir!
Skidby Mill near hull – I remember going there several times – pretty sure it was a functioning mill. Ah yes, a quick google and here it is.
These last two show a fairly uninspiring set of workings and a bloody great hole in the ground. This building site became the Humber Bridge – there are some more pics to come from 1974, but I’ve never seen the bridge complete.
