Two images showing the lower part(s) of Preston New Rd. The coloured postcard shows the Aspden Buildings to the left. They are still standing today, but the smaller properties next door, have been replaced by the new Capita Building and of course, Barbara Castle Way now cuts across the road, where the junction of Alma Street can be seen in this old image. Just further on, can be seen the steeple of St Georges Church, which stood on the corner of the next street, New Park Street.
The second postcard, shows the same church and the properties to the left of it a little more clearly and in the distance, can be seen the swerve of the road, where the entrance to the park is, on the right hand side.
