    The photographer of the Brook street 1960 and St Marks church photos is still taking pics and posting to flickr today.

    Historians say that the Wrexham’s steeple in the 19th century rhyme about the Seven Wonders of Wales refers to the steeple of St Mark’s Church (see being demolished above) not the TOWER of St Giles as many erroneously believe. What a pity people were so free and easy with the bulldozer in 1960s-2000s Wrexham as their damage has had a serious negative impact on the town which still effects us today.

    [ATTACH]6[/ATTACH]Is this the picture you mean? I posted this on the Old Pictures Of Wrexham Facebook page a couple of months ago.

    These buildings had far more character than those that have replaced them!
