Gloucester in The 1950s/60s page22

This is The Oxbode on a Thursday afternoon in the 1960s.For those who don’t know and may wonder why the city centre looks so quiet, it is because Thursday was a day when most, if not all, shops closed to give members of staff a rest.The camera is looking west toward Northgate Street.

Kings Square also on a Thursday afternoon.The camera is situated outside the the Post Office looking north toward the Bus Station.

Brunswick Road with the library on the right of the picture.This photograph was probably taken in 1967/8 at the start of the Eastgate redevelopments when a large chunk of the city centre was vandalized in the name of progress.
