what a beautiful town.my late partner's 3 and 4x great grandparents hailed from Bradford,and his 3xgreat grandfather was a surgeon living in St.Margaret's street,around the middle of the 19th century.

Heather McCarthy (Andrews)
It was great to see photosof where my ancestors grewup before immigrating to Australia.

David McQueen
Fantastic pictures. What a difference not having cars clogging up the town makes. Bradford is still a great town but wrecked by traffic flowing through its narrow roads.

Val Ferguson OBE
Terrific photos and so good to see Bradford on Avon BEFORE the traffic jams!

Melanie Purches
Wow! Amazing! Would anyone have a picture of the John Spencer Brewery as it was before Silver Street Pharmacy?

Robert Webb
Bradfordian from 1940 to 1969.Lived in Northern Ireland since then. As the skunk said as the wind changed, 'It all comes back to me now'. Well done!

Tina Edwards
Amazing, I have been tracing my family tree and always knew that my Grt, GF x2 was from Bradford On Avon and a Pork Butcher but to find photos of his Butcher shop in Silver St is just amazing. I am hoping to visit the Museum to see if there are any other photos of my family. Great site.

Mel Stevenson
As a desc of the Hobbs and Austin families who once lived in Bradford on Avon I have really enjoyed the photo's. I visited the area in 1996 but time didn't allow me to see everything so thank you for these wonderful pictures.

WONDERFUL pictures of England in days gone by. My Wife and I have visited before and will visit again; hopefully we can find some of these old places still standing and serving a useful purpose!
