Road upto Central Station

PICTURED this week is the road that led up to Gainsborough Central railway station and also the footpath under the railway line and up what is known as Pingle Hill.

Marshalls buildings appear on both left and right of the picture. Today, you can still access both the station and Pingle Hill by a footpath but the road has gone.

Part of Tesco’s now takes up the area on the right of the picture.

A few more names can be added to the bus employees’ party picture published on 29th December. On the back row, third in, is Rosie Frankish, and other names recalled are Bert Kent and wife Ivy, Madge Gibbs and Reg Pickin.
