A gathering in Whittlesey town centre which appears to be for the unveiling of the town’s war memorial.
A lovely old print of Market Square based on a painting by William Wiehe Collins (1862-1951) which was exhibited in 1905 as part of a series of Cathedral City paintings.
Looking down towards Wansford Bridge from outside the old Mermaid Inn on the right. The AA patrol man was a regular sight at the location as the staggered crossroads either side of him was, in effect, the A1 and A47 !
Marked as Peterborough’s “war trophy” and dated 12th August 1919, the exact location for this captured German tank is not known but it may be Central Park.
Marked as “Sunnyside” in Brigstock, I believe this was the home of the very substantial Rowell family. The head of the family was listed as a “fellmonger” - a dealer in hides or skins and particularly sheepskins.
Little is known about this one other than it is in Stilton !
A very bruised and battered early image showing the original Paul Pry on Lincoln Road probably from the very early 1900s. This building was demolished in the 1930s and the current Paul Pry was built in its place in 1936 albeit a little further along Lincoln Road from the original premises.
A wonderfully rural scene at a location known as Paston Valley which today would be the distinctly suburban Fulbridge Road with Itter Park to the left …… the uneven ground to the left is still very recognizable 100 years later !
A flooded Oundle Road under the railway bridge in August 1912.
A superb shot of a crowded Oundle Station c.1912 as a westbound train pulls in from Peterborough.
