Photo of 133 and 134 High Street, around 1980

Two 3-storey brick-built terrace properties, the left is in reasonable condition, the right has broken windows and appears derelict Quentin Pickard has provided this photo which he took around 1980.

He says 'The colour in the original slide is much better than the electronic copy - the house at 133 is bright red, and my purpose was to contrast the two properties - one virtually derelict, the other making a brave attempt to brighten things up! This was of course a time when the High Street was looking very much the worse for wear.'

The two properties in the photo were part of a terrace of four, each with a frontage of 11' and were in 'poor condition' in 1915.

30 years on, Quentin wondered whether the properties had been demolished, but a check on Google Street View shows the four terraces (131-134) and numbers 129 / 130 still standing at that time (2008?), the whole area having been acquired by the Geneva Group.
