Hillards and Hereward Radio, Bridge Street – 1980s

Hillards will be a name that is familiar with folks that have lived in Peterborough for many years. It was a shop quite similar to the likes of Tesco. It closed during the early 1980s and the site was eventually demlolished to make way for the Rivergate development that exists today. Hereward Radio that can also be seen in one of the photographs, moved to Queensgate once that opened. Hereward Radio no longer exists as a local radio station.

The Flying Scotsman, Walton Crossing – 1962 (Updated)

Pictured here is the Walton crossing as it used to be back in 1962. The loco was thought to be the Flying Scotsman but we have received a couple of messages saying it is not. It could in fact be either a Great Western “King” class or a double chimneyed GWR “Castle” class (thank you to Roger).

Thanks to Chris Allen for supplying the photograph.

Horrells Dairies Newspaper Advertisement – 1982

Anyone who has lived in Peterborough long enough will remember the fleet of blue/white Horrells milk floats that used to deliver our milk. When this advertisement was placed with the Evening Telegraph back in 1982, Horrells were still going strong.
