I have just discovered these two photographs published in Cassell’s Family Magazine in 1885. They may be some of the earliest Stony Stratford photographs we have.
This first shot is looking north to the river. Some of these houses survive today, but others have been rebuilt. The sign hanging out from the house at the end is that of the Barley Mow.
The photo on the Square shows the police station – at the time a relatively new building. The houses along Church Street are relatively unchanged.
