A look back into the past

Stirling Times - - News -

DOUBLEVIEW and Scar­bor­ough res­i­dents can see how much their sub­urbs have changed at the A Walk Through Time ex­hi­bi­tion this week­end.

Com­mu­nity group The Bend in the Road has cre­ated the free ex­hi­bi­tion with the City of Stir­ling as part of Sum­mer­set Arts Fes­ti­val and will dis­play more than 100 his­tor­i­cal pho­tos of the area.

Chair­man David Wray said the oldest photo col­lected was from 1920 and de­picted the old plank road, now Scar­bor­ough Beach Road, and there were other im­ages from 50 years ago.

“It’s un­recog­nis­able 100 years ago and you can see the mas­sive change in 50 years,” he said.

“Just try to imag­ine what it will look like in an­other 50 years.”

A va­ri­ety of events will ac­com­pany the ex­hi­bi­tion, in­clud­ing chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties, live mu­sic, rhyth­mic gym­nas­tics demon­stra­tion and lawn games.

Peo­ple are en­cour­aged to bring a pic­nic blan­ket, and a sausage siz­zle and gelato will be avail­able for pur­chase.

Visit Scar­bor­ough Civic Cen­tre on Satur­day, Feb­ru­ary 10 from 10am to 1pm.
