Church Street, Dunstable, pictured before the road was widened in 1963. The photographer is looking east, towards Luton. The street narrowed dramatically in the town centre, allowing only one-way traffic into the busy junction with the Watling Street. It caused huge traffic jams, as can be seen in the picture, and there was an urgent need for the road to be widened, even though this meant the destruction of some of the town's most historic buildings.
