Broadway, the 'Jewel of the Cotswolds'

Broadway and the memorial
 Broadway is situated in the Cotswolds and was for long a stopping off spot on the families journey to the south. Fortunately I managed to dig out a picture of the memorial in the centre of the village. As I remember nothing changed in all the years we visited. As you can see from the text and Post office stamp the date was 31st of May 1960.
This needs to be enlarged to see the car just to left of the memorial. The name of the cafe is "The Cotswold Cafe" the tailors name is Harold I Green.

It is clear that exams are just an issue in the 1960's as they are today.

Will be going back shortly, reenacting the trip that my father and I did in the '60's when he visited his Aunts' in Cornwall.
