This week’s Looking Back pictures are a random selection featuring events and street scenes.

The picture above shows Werringto residents proudly unveiling its village sign in 1980.

The village recently celebrated the unveiling of the sign after restoration work.

The next picture along shows a group of scouts meeting the city mayor.

Does anyone have any information about this picture? When was it taken, which group was it and who was the mayor? Let me know if you have any answers.

Today’s other pictures are street scenes. The one below the scouts on the left is Narrow Street and the one next to it is Park Road showing the Baptist Chapel.

I can’t place the one above, can anybody help me with the location?

Finally (as you’ve probably noticed!) it’s nearly Christmas so (right) here’s a Christingle past picture featuring youngsters from Bishop Creighton School at the cathedral.
