Chris said: “The top image was taken in the late 70s.

“You can see Peterborough District Hospital, an incinerator chimney and the letter sorting office - now home to Waitrose.

“The workmen were carving out a basement tunnel under Queensgate .

“Notice no hard hats nor fluorescent jackets!”

The next picture shows youngsters sat outside Burton watching the world go by.

Of the final picture Chris said: “I’m not sure why the big model was in front of Barratts shoe shop.”

Anybody know the answer?
