Hi - I'm trying to find a segment of Leicester Map showing Thornton Lane around 1935 (demolished in 1960's). I think near Redcross St (also probably gone), and it was a shortcut to Highcross St. Possibly not far from cattle market on Aylestone Rd. Any ideas? (Hard to get from Australia!).

I have some old maps of Leicester Amy if you want to follow Jeremy's suggestion (good one!) - well they are modern repros but show the old streets!

I have a book of old Sheffield photos called 'Then and Now' where the author has done just that, gone back to the street and taken a picture in the same location to show the changes. We should do something like that for Leicester!!



Love the New Walk postcard! Their dresses are yum!...

Hi Amy. Cool stuff, and brilliant that you're using Flickr to hold them. If you've not already done so, you should geo-locate them (just drag them onto the map in Flickr) then people will find them as they look around the map there - even if they're not looking at your photo stream. Next thing would be to get hold of old maps of Leicester and lay them over Google Maps, put your photos on top, cool....
