THE sign today instructs: “Priority over oncoming vehicles.”
But traffic flow wasn’t even an issue when the earlier of these two photographs, submitted by regular Memory Lane contributor Andrew Jenkinson, was taken.
Andrew says: “It’s hard to imagine this was how the entrance looked to Bispham Church, but the picture from around the early 1930s shows just how much narrower All Hallows Road was back then. With fewer cars the scene is very rustic indeed.
“On the right, but out of the picture, is now Montgomery School, built in the late 1950s.
“This was once farmland with several farms near Bispham church. The 2013 scene still has a number of trees though the church now also has an added clock on the tower.”
Andrew notes: “The cobbled wall has survived but the modern picture shows a wider road, white markings and metal railings. What a difference 80 plus years make!”
