    I remember it being so busy like that with the traffic. I can remember getting off the bus somewhere by Woolworths - I think there was a stop by there.

    I'm wondering what year WH.Smith opened in Church st ?? There is a Stylo shoe shop there on that photo - and I can't remember it.
    I presume the pic was taken in very early 1970s.
    I worked in WH.Smith from 1977'ish
    WH.Smith was where Coopers was.

    great photo's,

    my abiding memory when I was little of going to town with my Mum is the noise of the bus brakes, now I can understand why looking at all that traffic !

    sometimes when I'm in a different town or city and I hear those bus brakes it takes me right back to being 5 years old holding my Mum's hand in town.

    Default church st

    Glad i brought back some memories!

    I remember crossing the road outside woolies with a poiceman there in his little box directing the traffic!

    The bus brakes screeching were always a feature of Church St/Lord St... It got worse when Church St was pedestrianised and the buses went along Whitechapel , everyone running across the road in front of them outside Mothercare , anyone remember the Crosville bus that ended up in a shop front somewhere round where Wade Smith is now.

    Crosville bus's seemed to be totally different to 'Normal' bus's, and I don't just mean the shape and style. I am sure that they had the loudest brakes too.
    Not only that but they could take you to far away places that a normal bus just couldn't.

    Yes, the couple who run 20th Century Images have an unbelievable archive of glass plate negatives from Ellis Mann and other vanished photographic companies, all available as reasonably priced prints. Liverpool, Wirral, Chester, transport, work, all sorts of fascinating stuff and the quality is unsurpassed. A mooch around their 'Reflections' website is highly recommended-

    They used to live up here but inherited property in Hastings and run the business from there now.
