Great Yarmouth building demolition at Riverside Road, Gorleston, dated May 1960. Plate P3735

This picture from the Mercury’s photo archives is dated May 1960.

The very short caption reads “Building demolition at Riverside Road, Gorleston.”

As it happened 58 years ago, we bet there are many people who wouldn’t know what was there in the first place – and what the demolition resulted in, ie what’s there now?
