Nice little montage of pics from the 1960s http://www.chesterchronicle.co.uk/lifes ... 0s-6988281
Anyone old enough to remember the Queen's Arms then?

Wow! Pure nostalgia. Thanks for spotting and posting Ian.

Is that Mike's bike tied up outside the supermarket?!

I just love old photos and seeing how places have changed (or not).
A local photographer does some great mash-ups now where old and new are superimposed on the same pic.

A gallery of pics are in depths of the Chronicle website somewhere.

I've tried in vain to get him to combine a picture of Stuart Rimmer scoring in what is now the tills at Tesco Home Plus on the Greyhound Park!
