Thanks to Bob D. I don't recall having seen these before. I think you will recognise the places. I reckon taken late 70's or early 80's.

Crackers, thanks Bob and Tom. I will duly add to my collection. I reckon I have over a thousand now.
Bob they look like photos to me not postcards. Do you know who’s they are please? Might need copyright permission if I ever get this book put together!
Tom, the Square with the pool like that is definitely ‘81 or later, I have pics of Trish there at that time.
Cheers fellas.

I shall try to do a then and now of the first one. I did have a look today, but I suspect it was taken from one of the buildings that used to be along that road, or possibly from the corner of the old cemetery, which was closed today.

Below is the best I can do fora  'then and now' for theh first picture. The landscape has changed a lot since the original was taken. It wasn't taken from the cemetery, the wall is too high. I think it must have been from one of the buildings since demolished and where the Finisterre luxury tourist block is under construction.

I spotted the remains of one of the red and white posts. The new footpath etc is several metres back from the line of the cliff. The little bit of beach is still there, but a different shape now with a slipway for the boats that are stored there.

Click the picture to see larger size.

Thanks for that.

This short video was ~20 years ago shot at the discoveries roundabout, I uploaded it this morning as there is a bit of social distancing at play but more to do with the size of the cab on the wagon :D

I wonder would the GNR allow such behaviour these days.

Seems to be about home improvement.

Sorry all, I work on many forums but I had trouble with a link on here before. The link should be working now and below is an alternative link to the same clip.


Both have been tested.

They still let travellers clop around in horse and cart with children hanging off the sides and back.

Bob has sent some more old pictures of town. Some are familiar, others are not. I shall work on some 'then and nows' over the next few days.
