An occasional series showing images and items of interest from Long Wittenham’s past.
This time: a couple of views of St John’s Row in the days before the motor car:
These photographs are taken from Mercy Ward’s Scrapbooks which are now in the Long Wittenham History Group archive. If you have an interest in local history, why not join the history group? More information on the History Group page.
We moved to St John’s Row when we were first married. Number 4 to be precise. It didn’t look anything like the black and white photographs. I guess it would have been around 1971 although I can’t be sure. We all learned to “grow up” there. Wednesday was a special night when all our friends drove out and drank coffee. Ah happy times…
