More about this scene


Caption for Biggleswade, Market Square C1955: On a busy market day the former Market House is partly concealed. It was rebuilt in 1937 with fake timber-framing applied to the outside, but it did re-use the original 1565 roof timbers. At the right is John Wing's Town Hall, which cost £80; it was in public use until 1922. The tall pedimented building to the left in hot red brick and terra cotta, dated 1912, is Georges Hall Liberal Club.

Memories of Biggleswade, Market Square c1955

I love this photo because it contains my parents and brothers. The man with his foot on the wheel of the pushchair is my dad, Don Webb, and the woman to his left is my mum, Mary. The small boy between them is my brother Ian and my other brother, Graham, is in the pushchair. Sadly, only Ian is still alive.
