With Christmas pretty much here, we thought we’d look back at the bustling retro festive shopping scene.
Binns was always a haven for the festive bargain hunter and it was no different in this December scene from the film service counter in the 1980s.
Another shot shows a Salvation Army band braving the elements and entertaining the shoppers also in the 80s. Behind are Collingwoods, Dixons and Samuel’s shops,
A third shows two young shoppers browsing through a book while the fourth harks back to 1993 when Middleton Grange had a curly ramp to take customers between the ground level and the first floor.
The picture shows Woolworths and Burtons among the shops in the background. Who remembers these scenes? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
