For, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom -- for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.

Taken as part of a local video in 1982, great to see how busy the high street was

Jings! Real interesting. Has anyone spotted themselves? The video particularly reminds me of one Xmas, arriving c. 5 a.m. from London (or Hastings), only to drive up Commerce Street the wrong way. Some idiot had reversed the direction of flow!

Haha Pete, Did the same thing myself drove up Ladybridge St from the harbour.
Strange thing about Commerce St, they have probably changed the one way traffic direction since your last visit. So next time YOUR GOOD TO GO!

Derek, I saw this thread for the first time on The Shoppie this morning, but by 2pm Pacific time it was ALL OVER Facebook. Small World huh?

Hi all, I've just posted the original High Street footage on tube, not the redlichtie version which runs three minutes short and has been edited, which came as a surprise as the video is on my onedrive which I assumed to be secure,, think the faces are clearer on the original......

Thanks Derek, just read the story, bit of a shame really, I posted the video for historical and social interest ,which unfortunately wasn't really portrayed in the article, surprised to see it made a story, Bob

Good to see the town of old. Sad to see all those big old buildings gone now because of that carriageway though.
