Amazing photos of my old hometown!

This will mean little to anyone who didn’t grow up there. But if you did these photos from around 1900 to 1985 are mesmerising. I couldn’t stop looking at these. Like time-travelling. Every single one of these streets means something to me. Seeing ASDA being built must be how Americans feel when they see the Statue of Liberty being constructed!

Nothing as rural in Dagenham where I grew up, but seeing the old photos of what it used to be like is very heartwarming…unrecognisable now.

Now a Morrisons…
