Chester Road, Newquay, Cornwall. 1979 - A Glimpse into the Vibrant Past

EDITORS COMMENTS
. Step back in time to the bustling streets of Newquay in 1979 with this photo print. Capturing a slice of history, it showcases Hawkey and Bowdens Garage on the corner of Henver Road and Chester Road. The eye-catching Art Deco style building, now known as Chester Road Indoor Market, stands tall against the backdrop of a sunny Cornish day. The photograph not only offers a glimpse into architectural heritage but also provides an intriguing insight into transportation trends at that time. Amongst the array of vehicles lining the street are two notable cars - a Ford Fiesta bearing registration TRL 398S and another car marked PUW 595R. These automobiles serve as reminders of automotive design from yesteryears. Renowned photographer Charles Woolf skillfully captures this vibrant street scene, immortalizing an era long gone by. His lens transports us to an era where local businesses thrived and petrol stations were essential landmarks for both locals and visitors alike. As we immerse ourselves in this nostalgic image, we can almost hear echoes of laughter and conversations drifting through Joyce Greenham Street. This snapshot encapsulates not just a moment frozen in time but also evokes memories for those who experienced Newquay's charm during its heyday
