On my Wednesday morning jaunt I often stop at my favourite coffee shop in Yarm - Coffee @ Elliotts. Some of the walls show signs of times gone by.
Restoration work of the theatre has been underway for a number of years but has recently stalled. It should have reopened by now but has still to be completed. The restoration overseen by English Heritage is meant to maintain its Art Deco character. Among the faces on the mural are Paul McCartney, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison.

Another headline from the Sketch on page 15 had this to offer:
|Daily Sketch - 21 June 1941|
The Daily Sketch founded in 1909 was described as Britain's oldest tabloid newspaper when it closed in 1971 when it was merged with the Daily Mail.
Stockton-on-Tees High Street reputedly the widest in England is in the middle of a redevelopment. At one of the street I found this:
|The Globe Theatre, Stockton-on-Tees|
The Beatles played here twice; the first time on the night of 22 November 1973, the day that JFK was assassinated.
Whether the building remains a sign of times gone by or is a sign of things to come remains to be seen,
The theatre shot includes two established road signs. A local road has something much more modern.

I've waited days to get a shot of it illuminated by a speeding car - but have never been quick enough to catch one. Meanwhile a much more mundane warning is on the road itself.
