Then & Now


Using imagery collected from the Central Library I started the tedious task of finding the locations of these old shop fronts and comparing to what exists their today. These are a few examples of the ones I've managed to locate.

Interesting how the To Let/For Sale sign on "Union Street Sale" and "Peacocks" has landed up on the same window!

What has been ultimately interesting about these comparisons is seeing how local/independent businesses have been replaced by the big chains that we see dominating the occupied units of Union Street today.
