THIS week, our regular trip down memory lane takes us to Broad Street and The Oracle.

The old photograph shows that Wellsteed and Co used to be where The Oracle is today.

If you think you know when the original photograph was taken, please let us know.

We think that Wellsteed's was a linen drapery warehouse that moved to Broad Street in 1861 but if you think differently, please tell us.

Every week the team at The Reading Chronicle pores through the archives to find these hidden gems. We would like to hear your memories of the local area and any thoughts you may have on the changes that have occurred. Get in touch with us by emailing or write to Reading Chronicle, Bowman House, 2-10 Bridge Street, Reading, RG12LU.

We’re on the lookout for more historic images from the area. Send your pictures and suggestions for our team to re-photograph.
