A look back at our archive: Bird-eye views of our region’s towns and villiages in the past decades
This week we present some bird's-eye views of our region's towns and villages in past decades.
We begin with a charming photo of the crowded seafront at Yarmouth in 1951 (1).
Our next shot is of a wet Thetford market place in 1961 (2).
Fakenham market place is seen from on high in this photo from 1963 (3). Beeston hill near Sheringham provides a fine vantage point for this view of the town, taken in 1969 (4).
Our aerial shot of Bungay has no date but seems to be from the early 1970s (5).
Trevor Hand was spotted taking a break from painting the Duke's Head Hotel in King's Lynn with this grand perspective on the Tuesday Market Place, dated 1974 (6).
Another undated photo provides a rooftop view over Downham Market (7).
