Peoples Park then and now. A vintage postcard and a modern look.

I recently added the bottom postcard to my collection, it shows a view of Peoples Park, Halifax looking from south to north towards the Crossley Pavilion. I thought I'd go take a look at the same view now a couple of weeks ago and the top picture shows the modern scene. The park is now more tree lined and covers the spire of the Park United Reformed Church, which stills stands across the road from the park's north western corner although I am told is now a business centre.

The postcard I recently purchased.

A comparison shot from a similar position.

The rear of the postcard. It gives no indication of when it was posted only wishing best wishes to its recipient, a Mr & Mrs Butterfield of Leeds.

The modern comparison picture.

Thanks for looking and please share, any pictures taken by me Colin Green remain my copyright.
