Wellingborough Shed 1963

Wellingborough Shed 1963

The trainspotting scene in Brickyard Road, Wellingborough in 1963. Wellingborough No.2 shed is in the background along with the loco yard.

Three trainspotters are visable along with variety of bicycles and a scooter. The older boy on the bicycle is wearing a school blazer, long trousers and what looks like white baseball shoes, fashionable at the time. The other two wear long trousers and a jacket and pullover. Again, this is the period in time that boys moved away from wearing short trousers.

I am the trainspotter on the bicycle with school blazer. A few of us used to gather at this location almost every day.
