Aylesbury, Market Square 1901

More about this scene


Caption for Aylesbury, Market Square 1901: This is an interesting photograph, for the view has been unashamedly doctored by the Frith company in the past for the Christmas postcard market, to look like a seasonally snowy scene. This was not an uncommon practice, but in this case must have convinced no-one, for nobody is in winter clothes. The 'snow' clings to the Clocktower, whose foundation stone was laid in July 1876.

Memories of Aylesbury

I have many happy memories of living there, going to the Primary and Junior schools in Dunsham Lane and playing in the Alfred Rose Park, especially playing the Pitch and Putt golf (...Read full memory)

Looking for any information on a Mary Frances Reed or the Reed family whom we think lived in Aylesbury at the time. Name might have been spelled Reid. This is for genealogical purposes

I am looking to find someone who remembers the years 1941-1945 during WW2, in particular the family who lived at No.32, Whitehall Street/linked to Ripon Street. The families names were; Alice & Will Barnes, they had 3 children, Fred, Bert and Ina. Owing to the War my family were evacuated to Aylesbury from 1941 (...Read full memory)

I am researching my family history, and try to find relatives, my Aunt Lydia married Reginald Elliott in Kent during the 1930s, they had 5 children?? Reg, John, Fred, Rose, Yvonne, My Aunts death in 1972 was reg in Aylesbury, this is a very long shot, but maybe someone knows about the Family. Brian.
