It’s a place that has seen so many changes over the decades.

In 1928, City Square was a major part of the Civic Week celebrations as this fascinating picture from Leodis shows.

In the background, the Majestic was promoting the Civic Week Ball and Charlie Chaplin’s ‘The Circus’ was being shown.

Twenty five years earlier, the magnificent Black Prince was under construction and there is another great view of the Majestic from 1923.

Essential work was being carried out near the old station gates in the 30s and our final picture shows the very beginning of the square as it was being built in 1897.
