Looking down on our past!

An aerial photo of Bletchley from 1938.

Talk About Bletchley

Time can play funny tricks with your mind as the years pass by, many things we used to take for granted and even walk by without really noticing! We have had a recent request to see a ‘certain aerial map’ and here it is below; I will give you a ‘brief clue’ it was taken in 1938 (that’s even before my time!) so there’s a start. It is surprising that a picture can trigger off memories that we have stored somewhere in our brain and completely forgotten.

This is not a competition but it would be interesting to see how many of you recognise some of the buildings or roads that have disappeared from the map. I do look back with some affection how things used to be, although I must not be too Luddite I do have to ask sometimes, ‘is what we have now an improvement’?
