The Changing Face of Newbury: Part One

CAN you guess in what decade this picture of market day in 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.

Mr Higgott will be taking part in a signing session on Saturday in WH Smith in Northbrook Street, Newbury, between 10am and noon.

The Changing Face of Newbury is available, priced £9.95, from the publisher Countryside Books’ website at www.countrysidebooks.co.uk

    They could at least answer the question :-) I say late sixties, There's an early ford transit, ford anglia, what looks like the rear of a ford consul and a hillman minx. All sixties cars.

      I thought the late sixties as well, & no one with a mobile pressed to their ear how on earth did they manage !!!!

        Cars and people also managed to co-exist on the streets quite well too. Perhaps the lack of mobile IS the reason - no blaring music in their ears or the jabbering of a phone conversation distracting them from looking where they are going.
