“Overton has changed a lot”, is a cry we hear very often especially from those who have lived here all or most of their lives. Here are two views of Salop Road from just opposite Springfield Park that at first sight seem to contradict that statement, even though ther must be 80 years between them.


They certainly do look alike but, sadly, it is all an illusion and there have definitely been changes in the top part of the photo where the properties are barely visible. After the last house in the foreground we now have Millwood Rise. The Byn-y-Pys-Arms arms is now Bryn-y-Pys Court and Kath Wason’s house and Mrs Russell’s wooden bungalow have given way to four newly-built houses.  The building in the distance which we all know as Harmony Interiors was either the Bowling Green or the Co-op in the old picture.


There is still one more big difference though, the person who took the original photo, probably on a large old-style glass-plate camera, would not have had to leap out of the way of passing traffic as I did when I took mine!
