Morris House, built when the Stevenage Motor Compaany moved here from 15a High Street. There is a very good photo of the Weir Pond (seen here full of water) being it was being filled in, taken from the upstairs window of this building, on the wall in Boys2Men barbers in Stevenage High Street.

Delighted to say that the pear tree outside Springfield Cottage (9 Springfield Passage), rather remarkably, thrives still. This pic was taken 5 May 2013.

This site was later used for the Astoria cinema. The North Star bus and coach company had its garage next door. In the late 1930s North Star was still running a bus service from Stevenage to Hitchin.

The East Coast Main line, north to Peterborough, York, Newcastle, Edinburgh; south to London Kings Cross. The old Stevenage station is just off the top of this photo. It closed in 1973 when the new station opened closer to the new town centre.

A clear image of the former market town of Stevenage in north Hertfordshire, looking north along the line of the old A1 (Great North Road), when the settlement consisted of fewer than 5,000 people. Just over twenty years later, in the immediate postwar period, Stevenage was designated as one of the original New Towns and it grew rapidly throughout the following decades to more than 85,000.

Good choice of pic, but this is the old town of Stevenage. Construction on Stevenage new town commenced in the late 1940s, at first some way away from the original older town located along the Great North Road which is pictured here. In time the new town pretty much joined up with the old town though the old town still has a very distinctive country market town atmosphere.

Any chance of a later pic of the new town under construction in the late 40s/early 50s?



To illustrate changes in town planning in Britain this pic must be a candidate for the book, though it would be enhanced if a more recent pic could be added.
