These images show the same view of Holburn Street – just more than 40 years apart.
To see how the street has changed use our interactive sliders below to transition between old and new images. Grab the button at the bottom of the picture and move it left to see the recent picture, slide it right to see how the area looked in the 1970s.
The first picture, visible by sliding the button all the way to the left, shows the recognisable scene of the street as it now.
However, moving the button all the way to the right will fade through to an image of Holburn Street, taken in the 1977.
The granite buildings, and the curve of the road as it heads towards Union Street, are instantly recognisable with the sign for the old Shell garage visible.
This second series of images are looking along Great Western Road from its junction on Holburn Street.
The third series of pictures shows the opposite angle from the last, instead looking back towards the junction. This image was taken in 1975.
