  1. Isn't it amazing how the old views are always so much nicer. Was is it about progress that isn't working?

  2. What a fine frontage for the post office. If the people of Gladstone Rd c1910 were to see it now, they would wonder what 'we' were thinking!

  3. That is a gorgeous shop front. Boscombe was a bit posh then. The second view is very unappealing.

  4. As if I didn't have enough pet peeves already...This is a perfect illustration of buildings that do not pay respect to the corner, to their own detriment as well as that of the intersection. The Post Office had done such a fine job of it.

  5. What are the two men in aprons doing? Icemen, butchers or knife sharpeners?
