I have already spotted my dear friend, Ex-Mayor of Mansfield, Mr William Kaye, what a lovely family they all were.

In my opinion, the picture denotes what may have been the commencement of  the demise of our shops and market. i.e. the beginning of  the pay to park your car, laws of parking your vehicles.

Albeit only 1/- at the time, the prices soon escalated to diabolical charges and fines. As proved by large stores and supermarkets, drivers like free parking.
