Demolition of Spital Coaling Tower (1960)

A nice set of images kindly provided by ex-Peterborian Geoff Sutton who comments, “you may be interested to see the attached set of photographs of the demolition of the Spital Bridge railway shed coaling tower in 1960. They are taken from the grounds of the (then) Co-op Dairy and Bakery ….. my father worked at the dairy. The demolition was performed on a Sunday morning and there were understandably quite a few spectators there to watch the action. The pictures were taken with a Kodak Brownie 127 with 8 frames per roll and fixed 1/30sec shutter speed !”
