The first picture is of Stapleton’s ice cream shop in Bridge Street which was the must-go place for those with a sweet tooth.

Next is a picture of the now demolished Wirrina Stadium that played host to skating, wrestling shows, Northern Soul all nighters and punk rockers like The Clash.

There are also some images of the Wirrina being demolished.

Do you have any pictures taken at the Wiirina or memories you’d like to share? Have you got any pictures of Peterborough people and places from the 60s, 70s, 80s or 90s?
