Half century of change

MArket Rasen Market Place 1962
MArket Rasen Market Place 1962

This picture from 50 years ago shows how Market Rasen market place has changed over the years.

There are, of course, far more cars than in the early 1960s, while the huts and pumps are long gone.

On the right of the picture, work on building the new Co-op store, now Jacques, can be seen.

The picture was taken from St Thomas’s Church tower while repair work was in progress.
