Whitworth Rd - Looking East 

This is Whitworth Road looking East from the Rodbourne Arms.
 
The old photo dates from the 1920s and the calm quiet road is in contrast with the heavy traffic using the road today. The road was widened over the years but traffic calming has returned it to a similar width to that in the earlier photo.

Old photographs ŠThe Swindon Society and used with their kind permission.
