This blog is about Wolverton in Buckinghamshire,more particularly about its past, ancient and nearly modern. The area covered by the former Wolverton UDC is covered in this blog, and therefore includes Stony Stratford and New Bradwell. I take as my end point the period when the new 19th century railway town was absorbed into the newer development of Milton Keynes. The blog is a way of recording and publishing my notes and inviting comments and revisions of my memories from others.

Cambridge Street in the 1950s
Cambridge Street, looking towards Aylesbury Street
Cambridge Street, looking towards Buckingham Street
These two rather grainy photos show Cambridge Street in the mid 1950s. On the corner of Buckingham Street was a haberdashery known as Mullins. It was bought by a Rowland Hunt a few years later.
On the Aylesbury Street corner you can see Dimmocks, the grocery at 39 and I am not sure about 37. It was a Ladies Outfitter, but it may have become an office at the time this photo was taken - Registrar's Office?
