We are back in the 1980s and back in Peterborough city centre with this week’s photographs from my collection, writes Chris Porsz, the Paramedic Paparazzo.
These were take in the mid-eighties and does anyone know who the girls were that I caught enjoying a McDonald’s burger while sheltering from the rain on the steps of the Guildhall?
Who remembers the Silver Birch trees in the stone planters, and when Starbucks was still a branch of Lloyds Bank?
What about Frederick Morleys and the Army and Navy stores in the background?
Someone else protecting themselves from the weather is the well wrapped-up man on a bench in Bridge Street (second photo) reading Cathedrals of England.
I am guessing he was a tourist.
