The photographs show scenes of construction and/or refurbishment from the 1980s.

The first fascinating picture shows the new river Parkway Road bridge taken in August 1983 looking south.

There is a picture of City Road, July 1983, showing new offices – Monkstone House and Tout Hill on the right and part of Stuart House on the left.

I wonder if the VW camper van is still in action!

The final picture shows St John’s Street in December 1983 with St Mary’s Church still standing in the background.
