Alford, High Street c.1965

More about this scene


Caption for Alford, High Street c1960: The Market Place is to the right. In the distance we can see the shop of Frank and Albert Blakey, grocers, and the High Speed Gas offices. The grocers' shop has now been incorporated into the George public house. West Street, whose sign (right) has now gone, is the route to Horncastle and Lincoln. The road repairs next to the crossing are unusual, as nearly all the roads in these photographs seem to be in excellent condition. The pedestrian crossing has been slightly moved and is now controlled by lights. L W Newman (right) was a butcher, and was replaced by another butcher, Thornalley.
