Nearly sixty years ago, Harpenden was a very different place.

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

This picture of The George from the 1960s, from the collection of John Cooper, is a good example of a local landmark which can still be seen today.

John Cooper is an author who pens books about Harpenden, using pictures to tell the town’s history.

He has written A postcard from Harpenden, Harpenden Through Time, and Harpenden: The Postcard Collection.
