Remembering the war heroes
The poignant centenary commemoration of the Battle of Passchendaele this week have reminded us all of the horrors of the Great War.
Today’s Looking Back pictures feature images taken in Peterborough at the time of World War One.
The picture top right shows men of the Northamptonshire Yeomanry at Peterborough Railway Station in 1915 as they prepare to leave for the front.
The photograph above left shows vast crowds looking on as soldiers mill around in Cathedral Square or Market Place as it was then known.
The picture below it shows some of the brave men signing up to serve at Peterborough Recruiting Office.
The shop next to it looks like a clothes shop called Charles Allen. Does anyone know the location?
The other two pictures are taken from the Peace Parade in 1919. The one above was taken in Broadway.
Can anyone identifty the location of the other picture showing nurses marching proudly?
