MIDDLEWICH TOWN CENTRE POSTCARD
Postcard courtesy of Jerry Woods
This commercial postcard showing Middlewich town centre a few years ago was sent to us by former White Horse manager Jerry Woods, who now lives in Spain. It's useful for comparison with present day shots of the same area as it shows the area prior to the replacement of the piazza by the Roman amphitheatre (which, as we've learned, took place in April 2005). Dating the postcard exactly is a little difficult and really hinges on one question: when was 'Titles', the video shop which occupied Vernons/Fittons butcher's shop to the right of the picture closed and replaced by the current fast food outlet? This would be a clue as to whether the photo was taken in the late 1990s or the early 2000s Facebook feedback:
