This week’s Look­ing Back is an Aerial View spe­cial and fea­tures three splen­did panoramic pic­tures of the city. The first one taken in July 1985 fea­tures Peter­bor­ough Cathe­dral in the fore­ground.

A hot air bal­loon can be seen at the top of the pic­ture. The pho­to­graph ap­pears to have been taken froma rel­a­tively low height so per­haps it was taken from an­other hot air bal­loon.

The pic­ture top right is un­dated but the area in the top right hand cor­ner gives a clue as the Queens­gate cen­tre is un­der con­struc­tion.

The mar­ket and the ad join- ing multi-storey car park also ap­pear to be in the process of be­ing built.

The Em­bassy cin­ema and Here ward Cen­tre are key land­marks in this view of the city.

The fi­nal pic­ture was taken in 1978 and shows the old gas works.

The round­about link­ing St John’ s Road and East field Road is un­der con­struc­tion as is the Boon gate spur to the park­way.
