    Colour photos from the 1950s are very rare.

    Bunney's Whitechapel Store was taken over by Greenwood's of Bradford in March 1956.
    Greenwood's also took over Dunn's, on the adjacent corner, in the 1990s.
    That building is now McDonald's.

    Shops, Schools, Police - yes a truly mammoth task.

    These don't nearly go a smidgen of the way but is the best there is to offer regarding schools at present.

    Usual thought provoking photo Colin, Thanks.

    Is that a 'Greenwood' sign above the sun blind on the Church St. side?
