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).
