Flintshire Memories box trying and recall the “good old days” which, I am sure, we all look back on with relish. The first item is a well known view of our County town old Mold. Taken approximately in 1950, it shows a typical Market Day scene in the High Street – an event which has occurred twice weekly for centuries. The topographical view of the town has not changed significantly over 70 years or so, but no white vans or modern gazebos in evidence, and traffic was permitted in the High Street. This is a practice which was allowed until c1980 — of course no bypasses then ! One sad fact in the High Street today, only one named business has survived since this image was taken. Give up ? Answer – Boots the Chemist – still trading today, albeit in a different location. I am hoping that you fellow Members will enjoy the features and every encouragement will be given for each of you to contribute in a similar way. Hoping that this link will be enjoyed by all, and it will not be too long before we can all meet again in person at future Social History gatherings. Stay safe and Bless you all.
Best regards – Brian Bennett
