This section will be devoted to pictures of then and now. I will look to add photographs of people and places taken in the past and compare them with up dated photographs.

We may see some duplications where I have used the same photographs in their correct section on the site. Credit to Paul Hotchkiss and Gary Durbin  for assisting to take modern day photographs.Also Lee Dare who took some in May 2020
