Both pictures show views of the demolition work on the old Peterborough East station in Station Road

The first picture was taken in April 1972.

The second photograph was taken a month later. Peterborough East opened on June 2, 1845 and closed to passenger traffic on June 6 1966.

Have you got any pictures of Peterborough people and places from the 60s, 70s, 80s or 90s?
