    Very nice, Greg's Dad.
    Early 1960s?

    I've got 2 colour photos of Church Street in Christmas 1970.
    Not mine, and I don't know whose they are.
    If I find them, I'll post them.

    Lovely picture Greg's dad.

    Yes - the lights did look better then. There are more of them, and look at those chandelier type centrepiecs - you wouldn't get anything so fancy now.

    Henderson's is there, so it must be the 1950s.

    Those lights are better than the city had circa 1990, remember when it was just a few white round lightbulbs strung across Church St and nothing else.

    Sorry, did it again as I don't think the previous one is clickable. How do you get them on larger?
