Vale Royal looking towards the Ebonite Tower in 1977. Built in 1870 it was demolished in 1983.
These fascinating photos were taken by John Goodman an Australian who made two trips to UK in the mid 1970s. While in, as he puts it, ‘my raw early 20s’ – he pursued his interests in such things as Industrial Archaeology, science – ‘I joined the Quekett Microscopical Club (you might have to look that one up) in London – still a member of it’. John now lives back in Melbourne.
