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


Peoples Park Historic and Modern Comparison

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.

Rear of Peoples Park Postcard

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

Thanks for looking and please take a moment to share.
