Co-op Corner, Lingdale

The reverse of this unused Brittain and Wright postcard entitled ”Lingdale” bore penciled note: ’The Co-operative Stores corner’, hence our use in the title. Also in the back ground can be seen the trees of Nova Scotia Plantation, this was to the south of the mine in Lingdale; whilst the woodland (not visible in this image) to the north of Lingdale mine was known as Nova Scotia wood. The mine occupied the area now given over to the light industrial estate and several motor vehicle sales outlets. The wall on the left of the image faced an area of open ground now occupied by Meadow Dale Court and Lingdale village hall.
