The lamp-post in the foreground of the present-day picture above and the similarly-placed lamp-post
in the 1970s picture below (courtesy of Silsden Camera Club) give a fixed point from which to see
the enormous change in the section of Bridge Street between Hillcrest Avenue and Chapel Street.  
The picture below shows the Co-op block viewed from the junction with Hillcrest Avenue. Farther along Hillcrest Avenue was a well-remembered grocery shop, Archer's.
