The View from Brent Court in the Late 1960's

Martin Woodrow

My girlfriend at the time I took these lived in Silam Road, where Brent Court is located, so it was easy to pop to the top of the flats for these photos. They were taken using my (then) new Nikon F — my pride and joy at the time, which I still have — and developed and printed by me too in the shed at my parents house in Shephall View. I was the Librarian in charge of the Science & Technology Department at Stevenage Library and was later County Information Librarian. I and my family later moved to Bedfordshire, then France and now I’m on my own isolating in Wales.

  • Great pics Martin. I love seeing the town as I remember it as a child.
    It looks so much better without that awful dueling of St Georges Way and before Manulife House was built, right next to the church.
