    Its a big image – spotted it on twitter from @gedgie .

    The changes are quite big and I didnt realise half the town centre used to be what looks like scrap yards!

    that’s amazing. I love it.
    i wonder what date exactly.
    must be around 1980 or thereabouts.

    Looking some more at this I am guessing late 70’s as thats a modern ASDA in that shot?

    I love old photographs of towns and cities. This one is a cracker due to its size and quality! Well spotted Rob.

    To all those that moan about all the empty shops in Wrexham now – take a look at this and tell me you’d like to go back to those times! Most of the town seems derelict in that shot! Rose-tinted glasses anyone?
