This old photo is Glasgow Road looking eastwards around 1910. It got me thinking just how different Glasgow Road has changed in over 100 years. Nobody from that era would ever recognise what is there today and of course it’s all changing again with the construction of the new retail units at Asda.
Putting this scene into context, here’s what it looked like in 2017 from exactly the same location. Of course the ‘Shopping centre’ is now demolished and how green it looks by comparison, with a notable absence of retail and commerce.
