We are pleased that some old photos of the town have come into our possession. We will be posting ‘then’ and ‘now’ scenarios on these pages. Photo 1 is remarkable given the striking likeness to the builing today and even the stairs and railings to the side of the shop are retained. Those from the town will know instantly the location of this photograph, identification can be found on our facebook page www.facebook.com/NortonOnDerwent where comments are invited.
Photo 2 depicts a quiet street which is now the town’s busiest street, again, the shop second on the left has retined its frontage in its entirety today.
We will be posting now photos shortly, there are also several other historical photos to come which will be posted on these pages and on the facebook page. Do let us know if you have any photos of Norton on Derwent which we could share. Even recently historic ones would be of interest.
