Have your say

It'd be nice if you could enlarge them a bit. Thanks.

Oh the memories, the good ol cinema!

I left Workington in 1966, so can remember it as shown in the photos. On my first visit back in 1975 I decided that the Central Hotel would be a good place to catch up with old friends, but found Tescos wall in its place. An icon replaced by an eyesore I said at the time.

What a thrill to see Ethel's video reminiscences, how more vibrant Workington was long ago, with the many shops, market traders,churches,fine buildings, there was everything then it seems. So much for modern advancement, when you see into the past !

Fantastic pics - great to compare. They would look great published with the later view on the facing page. The poem video is just brilliant; I'm guessing much older resident will love it.
