EVERY WEEK COME TUESDAY
Over the years the Isle of Wight has seen many changes, especially some of the town skylines that have changed beyond all reconition. Where we now shop for convenience food once stood a thriving cattle market, the bus station once resembled a bomb site, and cinemas have been converted into pubs and even shops. We quickly accept all these changes and forget what our surroundings once looked like. Our children take it for granted that all these buildings have been here since time began and accept them as part of their daily life. Do you remember when Newport had a Railway? Or when Steam trains ran to Ventnor, and Shanklin had a pier? “Every Week Come Tuesday” may jog you memory and help you recall lost buildings, places and faces of everyday Island life over the last fifty years, including the weekly Market held in South Street, Newport, and a journey by steam train from Ryde Pier Head to Ventnor in the late 60s, as well as a trip aboard the “Queen Mary” from Southampton to New York in 1965.
