My photograph this week shows a picture within a picture!
You may recognise this mural, which you can find off Gladstone Street.
The picture to the left shows when it was first painted in the 1980s, with a young pupil walking past.
The second picture below shows Raja Akeel - pointing to himself as the boy about three decades ago.
A couple of quick updates.Two weeks I showed you two pictures of the Piccolo off-licence, also on Gladstone Street.
My delighted postman Raff later knocked on my door and said it was his dad in the old picture, now aged 87 now. I sent him a copy, of course.
Reader David Robinson contacted me on the recent pictures of PDH, and says he is enjoying the “then and now” pictures.
He added: “I’m not a Peterborian, but have lived here for more than 20 years and – while the more modern architecture of the ex-hospital was never the most aesthetic – I feel that it is a shame that the building has been left to ‘run to seed’ as it has, particularly when many local people – myself and my family included – have been more-than-glad of its services from time to time. There is also the matter of valuable parking space lying unused.”
