Man, it's great to see all these old photos. I love all that stuff. However, it really does make you realise what a farking mess the town has become, architecturally speaking.
Stafford could rival Ludlow, Shrewsbury, Chester etc for great old buildings, but instead it seems to be competing with Telford and Wolverhampton for 'most grey concrete award'.
who remembers 'isabel the locomotive' that was located by victoria park until 1980.
where is that - the post office end of mill street?
stafford rangers - 1884. don't they look a tad camp.
OMG! I can't believe they knocked that down to build the civic centre.
I remember Isabel.
Amazing photos Tenshon. You deserve a Special Forum Award for outstanding contribution. (A Forum Awards Ceremony, now there's an idea...)
Some old family Stafford stories, my Nan's brother was run over and killed at the age of 3 by a horse and cart in the Littleworth area. My Dad bought a pair of Carhartt jeans for 2'6 and changed into them in the underground toilets in the Market Square after he'd nicked an ashtray from a pub to get the beer mat out of it, and my Nanna's first husband jumped in front of a train on Christmas eve at Stafford station. Did your folks tell you any good stories from the olden days, maybe a bit more up beat?
indeed, that train station once looked like this...
remember Tipping Street - 1970's - Union Building
Well done, Tenshon. You win a paperclip.
What the hell have they done to our town compared to how it used to look?? How do they manage to make such ugly buildings now?
Some great pics..
Check out where Boots used to be.
But Where is Isabel now? A bag of penny chews, or a 10p assortment to the first correct reply?
The retired Isobel was at Amerton Farm the last time I looked, will check that on next visit.
I like cola bottles.
I'm sure I would have seen her there. I reckons you're just after them sweeties.
