SU6089 : Wallingford

taken 41 years ago, near to Wallingford, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

This is the only photograph I have ever taken of this proud old town. I presume the building in the foreground is the Town Hall. For many years, Wallingford was the County Town of Berkshire. Then one day in 1974, some four-eyed freak from Whitehall turns up and says, "Sorry chaps, we're putting you in Oxfordshire now!" What presumption!
