We have enjoyed a busy and intriguing week since our last posting from South Somerset District Council’s Community Heritage Access Centre.
One of the main features of this week is the number of new items and photographs donated by the public. We are particularly pleased that people still wish to donate objects and these are within our collecting policy of Yeovil and South Somerset.
One particular highlight was a long service award for an employee of the Telephone Exchange in Clarence Street, Yeovil before this was ‘standardized.’ More hopefully next time!
This image of a Bedford lorry dates from the mid-1950s and is on the corner of Silver Street, Court Ash and Market Street, Yeovil showing ‘market traders’ and the main Yeovil Market in full swing. Also note the commercial vehicles at the top of the photograph in the main Yeovil Market parking area.
This image is featured in the new ‘Celebrating Yeovil’ 2017 Calendar, available in Yeovil Tourist Information Centre, Yeovil Town Council, Union Street and The Emporium, Princes Street, Yeovil.
