Loughborough in the 80’s – Eight of 8ight

A new series of 8ight. Eight images captured on film in the 1980’s.
The last image in the series and the photo notes from the Loughborough exhibition.

Last Christmas was the first time  in 9 years that I had been home to Loughcaster so of course I noticed a few changes around the place. My first impressions were how narrow some of the roads and streets were in the town. I made a quick mental note to replace underpants and give the school on Beacon road? A wide berth, especially during pickup and drop off darling time. With cars parked on either side of the road, it seems that parents just aim for the middle and don’t stop until they come out the other side. Another change? Well looking rather sad and empty on Baxtergate was Mr. Moffatt’s old shop. With no disrespect to other camera shops, you just don’t get that kind of service anymore. It was the way that he took the camera from the shelf offered it up to you as if it was the Holy Grail and repeated the make and model. You knew, he knew that the money was already in the till.
I remember the night when I took this picture down at the Midland station. A trainspotter came up to me all excited because when he saw me with my tripod and camera, he thought that I knew that something
special was coming through? No only an Express Football special returning to Leeds. It ain’t stopping, they lost!
So I suggest you take cover!

Loughborough in the 80’s – Seven of 8ight

A new series of 8ight. Eight images captured on film in the 1980’s.

Today’s image is a winter scene from the bridge over the Grand Union Canal on Moore Lane. We locals! Still refer to it as the ‘Cookhouse Bridge’

Reminds me of a 60’s winter advert for Cadbury’s drinking chocolate.

As I type my fingers are sticking to the keyboard with sweat. It is about 40 degrees in the shade. Hot Chocolate! How about  cold beer.

Loughborough in the 80’s – Two of 8ight

Welcome to this weeks theme. Loughcaster my home town.
A new series of 8ight. Eight images captured on film in the 1980’s.

Ah, This image brings back happy memories from the 1970’s.
Prog rock fans that we were. I remember the  local Northern Soulies took great exception to this!
So to coin a phrase from a Led Zep album. It really was a case of Physical Graffiti!
