Bletchley photos!

According to the Met Office this Summer has been the hottest since 2006! The problem with Bletchley’s location is that we are pretty well land-locked, the nearest piece of coastline being roughly at Hunstanton on the East Coast. Nevertheless, long before Bletchley had a swimming pool many people found ways of keeping cool during prolonged periods of warm weather. Have a look at the picture, any ideas of the location? – if you know you may even be able to recognise people you knew many years ago.

Bletchley photos!

Although this old picture is rather grainy I think it still contains plenty of detail, do you think the tall chimney in the picture could be Ackroyd Stewart’s factory in Denmark Street, most certainly it seems to be in the general direction? Also, it makes me smile when you see people of this era posing for the camera, most certainly these children were all pretty intrigued!

Well, at last I think we can proclaim that summer has arrived, although for some of us the humidity may have been a ‘little too much’! So for those who prefer things just a little cooler I think that this month’s ‘mystery picture’ may fit the bill! Bletchley and Fenny Stratford have over the years changed beyond recognition, however I’m sure there are a few of you out there who may recognise ‘something from the past’ in this picture?

Although this old photo has lost a lot of its definition you can still recognise the name of P. J. Baker, photographer.   We do not have a date for this but perhaps the lovely old motorcycle out the front might give us a clue?

Everything for the discerning photographer!
