WE'VE been looking through the archives to show you these old pictures of St John's Street in Colchester.

Although one side of the street has remained much the same over the decades, our pictures show the huge development that was St John's Walk and St John's multi-storey car park.

There's also a glimpse of the Playhouse in a former guise, Percy Turton, who was a well-known face at St John's Street Greengrocers, FV Cheek Confectioners and the old Fish Restaurant. 

Can you remember St John's Street as it was in any of these photos? Share your memories in the comments below.
