Stockport Road ,Gee Cross
This is a view of Stockport Road,Gee Cross Circa 1975/76.
The shop to the right was called "The Pantry", as were many shops in that era, and was where I used to go for sweets and ice-creams. It looks such an unhurried time - even the dog is resting. I like it better than the present day picture because there is less traffic on the road. Notice the old dustbins pre- wheelie bins! Also notice the old type litter bin that was often defaced to say "Gary (G)litter" !
Thanks to Nick for sharing this photo. Great days indeed!
This is the same view taken in 2009 - so many cars on the road!
