New for Old @ BBC

Yesterday I spotted the photo on the left at the garage where I was collecting my car from after a service and asked if I could take a copy. It's of Chipping Sodbury High Street and must have been taken around the 19 tens, or possibly a little later (spot the WWI plane buzzing the High Street - a commendation for whoever can say what plane it is).

Thought I'd take a picture of the town as it is now, from the same spot and almost 100 years later. In the early part of the 20th century they were drowning in horse poo; today it's cars (click to enlarge).

Think I'll see if I can get a job at the BBC - I'll be made for life!
