Photographs showing St George's Park in 1958

By John Layton

St George's Park hasn't changed much over the years, and still provides a peaceful haven from the hustle and bustle of the town centre, only a few minutes walk away.

The second picture shows the War Memorial on the west side of the park, which commemorates the many local people who lost their lives in the two world wars.

The main column holds the details of the WW1 casualties, while a series of plaques nearby commemorate the casualties of WW2.

My grandfather Frederick Leak built the wrought iron work on the memorial. The Eastern Evening News reported his death in May 1948 and recalled that he was responsible for the railings.

I was back in Great Yarmouth last April for the first time in 15 years I stayed down St Georges Road so walked across the park into the town. I was amazed how its changed all the trees have gone it looks like a park in the town centre with a road running through it. I took quiet a lot of pictures of it I was so impressed on it being so nice
