Exploring the roots of the Garden City
Letchworth in Old Postcards
Much of this site was built pre 2003 and the street scene in the photographs is from that period. There have been many changes ,
many making the area more functional but many which have seem to be change for the sake of it. I like the place less than I did
25 years ago when I moved here but thats just my opinion.
The offsite web links are constantly changing so may not work, I review them to find the new url when I get the chance
but this is an unpaid project so has to take second place to my main work...
