The Changing Face of Newbury: Part Four

CAN you guess in what decade this picture of the bus station in the Wharf, Newbury, was taken?

This is just one of more than 100 fascinating photographs contained in a new book called The Changing Face of Newbury, written by local author and historian Tony Higgott.

Newburytoday will feature one nostalgic picture from the book each day for the next eight days – each with a question for you to answer. The answer to today's poser will be revealed on Newburytoday tomorrow.

The answer to yesterday's question about Marchhant's Garage was the 1960s.

The Changing Face of Newbury is available, priced £9.95, from the publisher Countryside Books’ website at

    Did part 3 actually appear on Saturday? I was looking out for it and never saw it and can't find it now either, even though parts, 1, 2 & 4 are still on the site!
