Burton’s in Whitby Road


Whitby Road, probably sometime in the sixties, and today.
This one shows how easy it is to miss details above street level, at least for me. Until I started working on it, I was completely unaware that one of the Burton’s signs was still there, on the side of what is now Motorworld.

The lull in the traffic today gives the impression that there is less traffic now than when the first photo was taken, but that impression would be wrong., as a few moment either way the road was full.
