A quiet afternoon

A couple of interesting cards spotted on eBay – I’ve seen the top one before, but not as far as I can recall the bottom one.

It’s late afternoon on a sunny day, looking at the shadows from the west. Any guesses on the date? Looks 1960s to me – note Craddocks, the Station Hotel and the Chemist (can’t recall which one)…

Please, click on them to enlarge, and let me know what you spot… comment here or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com


Looking up High Street towards the Anchor Bridge, Station Hotel on the right. Click for a larger version.



Looking in the opposite direction from near the top of Silver Street, Craddocks on the right. Click for a larger version.

    The lady in light coloured outfit by the pram could be my mother. That would make it 1959, but maybe wishful thinking.
