Old Maps of Shirehampton

Historic Maps of Shirehampton and the local area.

Move to 31 Playford Gardens when they were built in 1955 as a kid. I remember the steam rollers still laying the main road, the new doctors at the bottom of Mancroft Ave, with Doctor Page and the open fields at the back where the M5 runs now. Good times and some great friends made there.

The shop at the top of the steps was the fish and chip shop. When I was a kid, used to get fish and chips there for 1 shilling and six pence (71/2p) on the way back from the cinema - both are long gone... good days.
