9 The Parade, around 1900, the buildings looking very much as they do today. On the right is theTown Hall, while in the centre of the picture in the distance can be seen Christchurch, which was demolished a few years aga. Unlike the scene on the Parade today, the area is free from motor vehicles.

10 Yet another postcard of York Walk, where in sharp contrast to the walk as it is today, flower beds grace the river side and enhance the beauty of the perimeter of the park. The photograph, taken around the turn of the century, gives a lovely insight into the charisma of days gone by.
