98 Barnstaple High Street … I do like a vintage shopfront. Shame the lamppost has changed position at some point though! 🙂

Interesting Then & Now composition using an old photo taken during the widening of Barnstaple’s Queen Street. If you’ve ever been in the Olive Branch and wondered why it’s long & thin – here’s why. Well, you’ve probably never wondered why The Olive Branch is long & thin – but now you don’t need to. 😉

Peakes Grocers – Barnstaple Then & Now


“Before” and “After” – drag the vertical slider left & right to reveal/hide what’s underneath

Here’s a Then & Now slider of a long gone family grocers in Barnstaple’s Coronation Street. Always a sucker for an old shop-front, I couldn’t resist turning the old postcard into a Then & Now composition when I saw it pop-up on eBay. If you look closely you’ll see the brickwork matches up exactly in both images when you slide the image backwards & forwards .. not a bad effort considering I borrowed the “Now” image from Google Street View! 🙂 JP.

Barnstaple Strand – Then & Now


“Before” and “After” – drag the vertical slider left & right to reveal/hide what’s underneath

100 years between these two photographs taken down on Barnstaple’s Strand, but with the exception of disappearance of the building nearest to the camera on the right – the old fish market – not really a lot of difference between them at all

Barnstaple High Street – 1881 Blizzard

Fantastic image from 1881, Barnstaple High Street after the region was hit by particularly heavy snow
