IN 1965, one of our photographers got a "wide-eye" lens, which we'd probably call a panorama today, and tried it out by taking a few street scenes.

Because the resulting prints were so big, they couldn't be filed in our usual archive of packets, and so they got stuffed in a corner where we have just rediscovered them after all these years.

This is Thirsk Market Place on September 29, 1965, taken from the Post Office steps and illustrating the "new pedestrian crossing".

Our old car spotters might care to identify the big black vehicle parked just to the left of the Town Clock. If you can, email
