Asda under construction

, ,

Newton Abbot, April 2006

These photographs are pretty poor quality, especially for their age, but are at least hopefully of historic interest. They follow-on quite nicely from photographs taken a year or so earlier of the extensive demolition involved in preparing the site to make way for Asda.

This is the store under construction, and even before it was opened it was the talk of the town. I am sure that some people welcomed it but a great many vowed never to enter when it was finally opened. It seems to be doing very good business, but I am pleased to say I am not one of their customers.

Photographs taken on a Panasonic DMC-FZ7 bridge camera, which was never very good and by some margin the poorest I have ever owned. I had an excellent Canon DSLR at the time, so why I didn’t use it escapes me.
