This was the rather bleak scene at the top of Trinity Street shortly before the Second World War broke out. The old belfry is still in the background, just visible to the left of Holy Trinity Church whose bells it housed.
Clicking on the photo will bring you forward to 2012. Gone is the campanile and the bus-stops - grass covers the top of the now traffic-free Trinity Street. This link will take you to a pair of photographs looking back in the opposite direction.
