Road Changes
Traffic flow, traffic lights, car parks, and widening
The Rushden Echo and Argus, 8th October 1954
digging up
Three highway and pavement features
are combined in one picture at the corner of
High Street and Newton Road, Rushden.
A slice of pavement has been carved off to improve the road junction, soon to be controlled by traffic lights. The pillar box which stood there for many years has just been moved to a site nearby,
and a “no waiting” sign is just going up.

Note: This is known as "Ward's Corner"
