Circus procession in High Street
Thank you to Sandra Nuttell for sending me these pictures of High Street in the 1950's. She informs me that the ones taken highest up are from Bank House in High Street where she spent part of her childhood. Before the days of Health and Safety when a circus came to town it was customary to have a procession like this to advertise the circus.
Below: Just visible in the distance are the Royal Oak and the Lord Nelson pubs and a building on the corner of Liquorpond Street that are all now demolished.
