Working with the local studies department of Chesterfield Library, we’ve dug out these great images from yesteryear – and placed them alongside new pictures showing the same scene as it looks today.

It’s amazing to see how much some things have changed – as well as how some places still look the same.

For more photos showing the changing face of the town centre, have a look at the evolution of Holywell Street, home to Eyres and the Winding Wheel.

And why not join the Derbyshire Times retro Facebook group for even more nostalgia photos?
