Congregational Services During The 1950s

During the 1950s Reverend Gould would cycle down London Road to hold services here. Miss Flower and Janice Olley were two of the Sunday school teachers at the little school further up London Road past Friars WalK where a coke stove would warm the stone building.

Record Shop, Duke Street, Chelmsford

Looking for help naming a record shop that was in Duke Street in the mid seventies. It was on the left after the Lion & Lamb if you were heading towards the High Street.

Chelmsford, High Street, 1955.

Looking up the High Street, at the very top you can just make out Shire Hall. The building to the right, which used to be J. G. Bonds, is now the Debenhams store. The building just beyond the lamp post, sticking out, is actually on an ismall island; and is where a branch of Lloyds Bank still stands to this day.
