Here is a "Chrominance wipe Transition" video version of one of my large collection of fading then and now photographs of Derby and Derbyshire.
The view will fade back and forth several times, revealing past and present views as it goes.

Here we can see a view of the former Main Centre in Derby. The first photo is around 1963 and the second is 21st May 2003.
Of course since then this entire area has vanished to make way for the new £340M Eagle shopping centre extension by Westfield, The Wesfield then became Intu Derby. I shold really redo this video now its all changed again.

See my Westfield Derby video :

See my photographs here:

Perhaps you remember it like it was yesterday.
Do you remember First Byte Computers in the left corner?
Wilkos of course that had been there for many years with Argos beyond that.
That odd building on the right side that had a mosaic tiles in the shape of some eggs?

I always remember that, and now its all gone for ever.
The Main Centre may have been crap but its part of your memories, shed a tear for times gone by. . .

If you have any nice memories of this area post them. What was that record shop on the right that used to sell tickets for music gigs?
