High Street 10 years on

2009 was the first part of the High Street Photo project to record the shop fronts of every shop. 


Is the High Street a better place 10 years on?  Anyone fancy doing the same for 2019?

As for 100 years ago, this then and now slider demonstrates the evolution of the West End.

Details in photos

Can’t see that this has been posted before but it’s a small part of a larger photo and one of my favourites for detail:-
Passer by exhaling smoke from his fag,
Impatient man in car (and, yes, it’s a Model T Ford) with noisy kids thinking ‘How much longer – is she buying the bloody place!’
Automobile Association  bonnet badge (blimey, do you remember those!)
Lad with wheelbarrow imagining how pleased his Mum will be when he brings fresh horse manure for the garden back through the house.
Evidence of an itchy-bum outbreak in Shoreham (that’s lowered the tone a bit!)
