Postcards of the Past


Bridge Street, Stratford-upon-Avon


Bridge Street is the main shopping street of Stratford, leading downhill from Barclays Bank to the roundabout at the junction with Bridgefoot and Waterside. There have been a lot of changes since I lived at R M Bird's in the 1940s, not least a reduction in the number of pubs and the disappearance of several big retail shops such as Woolworth's !
