The photos below are from a booklet put out c1960 by the Thames Public Relations Committee. A very positive booklet obviously designed to sell the wonders of the town. Reflecting now, it makes good reading as it is of places and people that many readers can remember.
Yes they are blurred, but hope you get the idea!
