Recreating a Stockton Postcard

t14477 t14477aI came across this very nice postcard of Stockton and decided to have a go at re-creating it as best I could, unfortunately I picked the wettest day last week (August 2015) to visit the High Street to take the photographs of the church and High Street so they are looking a little grey and washed out and of course I couldn’t get to the top of the Town Hall so I had to do them from ground level. Norton Green and Ropner Park as well as the Church haven’t changed much and the Shambles is still there in all it’s glory but of course the High Street has changed quite a bit, the layout is much the same as are some of the buildings but the overall feel is quite different from earlier times.
