|Westgate Station Rd - Circa 1910|
Wandering around Westgate, taking photographs this afternoon, I spotted the photo opposite in Tony Deeprose's antique shop in Station Road. It's not one I've seen before of the town in Edwardian times and he kindly let me photograph it to share. It's amazing how a little modern technology can recover more of the detail than is seen in the original.
I will add it to my Flickr library with all the others, that you can access from this weblog sidebar, so they aren't lost again.
In fact, several of our shops were looking colourful this afternoon but I rather wish I had a time machine, in the fashion of HG Wells and could grab some better photographs of the start of the 20th century in the town
Earlier in the week of course, we saw a very successful fashion show take place at the Knot in Westgate and I'm delighted to announce that our ever-vigiilant local law-enforcement team of Peter Curtis and James Coleman, swiftly apprehended a deranged fashionista, who fled the event wearing nothing but a faux-mink coat.
The fur coat has been returned to its owner and the suspect - pictured - can be bailed from detention on eBay for £80.00
I may write something a little more sensible tomorrow!
