Here's my latest favourite current new find from the Bygone Spon End FB group - pretty sure that is the Butts junction with Windsor Street with St Osburg's spire in the distance Big grin Edited by member, 9th Jan 2018 8:36 pm

I seem to remember when I walked from town to The Butts (ONC in business studies day release and a night class of dressmaking) there was a junk shop at the top of a few wide steps, she used to lay stuff out on the steps. Does any one else remember this so I know I am not having a senior moment?

Another one in the 'series' of the cycling track from the Bygone Spon End FB page, this one with slightly better clarity of the backs of the rows on Butts.

Another couple of great shots from the Bygone Spon End page here of Windsor Street - Firstly looking south at some of the original buildings with George Poole House showing : And this one on the corner with Spon Street with Meadow House in the background :

I too did ONC business studies at the Butts and remember the bookshop well. I did the course around 1960/62(?) on day release whilst working at the Co-op. Not sure I remember the junk shop though!!!

Just after you, I was there 1963/64 ! We had an Economics lecturer that was rubbish. The next subject was accounts and the lecturer for that was great. He could explain what the previous lesson was trying to teach us in 5 minutes. We had a nice day out one day to Hams Hall power station!

Went from learning book-keeping in those large rooms with big windows (debit nearest the window) at the Butts to working underground auditing in central Africa, via Lanchester Polytechnic (before it was a university!) If only I'd known then what I know now!!! LOL
