Harpenden has been picturesque for a long time and residents have always enjoyed the town’s green spaces.

Our Throwback Thursday highlight aims to show just how much the town has changed and evolved over time, using old pictures of what it used to be like.

This is a depiction of Church Green in the 1960s, from the collection of John Cooper, compared to a present day photo.

John Cooper is an author who pens pictorial history books about Harpenden - he has written A postcard from Harpenden, Harpenden Through Time, and Harpenden: The Postcard Collection.
