LETTER: Clues to Memory Lane pictures

I am a bit concerned as to the year that you have stated for the pictures in Memory Lane in last week’s copy of your newspaper.

After consulting several older residents of Horsham whose memories of the town go back to before all the work was done to alter the town, we feel that your date is almost ten years later than the photos were actually taken - we think about 1969ish.

As clearly in the picture is Albion Road car park, also the Gas Works car park, also the very first Sun Alliance building and we think that was completed early 1960s, also the very first Blackhorse Way car park.

I, or we, stand to be corrected if we are wrong, but the feeling is the photo is closer to 1969 than 1979.
