    Local Bygones – search for old photos near you

    Perhaps you can spot yourself or old schoolchums.

    Good idea for a thread!

    There are a few sites that have some good pictures eg BBC – North East Wales Old Photos – Old Wrexham
    BBC – Old photos of Wrexham town centre
    Old Photos of Wrexham North Wales

    and I am sure others will get posted up!

    You can link to images on this forum using the IMG tags, or clicking insertimage.gif

    which would display like this:

    Also, if anyone has old photographs that are not online then let me know as one longer term aim with the Wrexham.com is to digitise as much wrexham related stuff as possible – so it would be good to sort a scan + hosting session for stuff that has not seen the light for years!

    The hours I’ve spent on there. What surprises me is the no pedestrianisation!

    Rob – for years the frontage was propped up with scaffolding waiting for developemt. I saw a photo recently with it like that – it might have been on the facebook page. The failed plan for the precinct there would have incorporated the frontage.

    As as an aisde does anyone else remember using those horrible gents underground toilets – see the entrance to the left of that pick of the veg market!
