THIS week, our regular trip down memory lane takes us to Friar Street.

The street today looks mostly the same as it did all those years ago, apart from a change in the building structure on the right side of the road.

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

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.
