Norwich city centre in 1991.

Norwich city centre in 1991.

This fascinating video shows the streets of Norwich city centre in June 1991.

It was uploaded to YouTube by henryhvideofan and shows Norwich Market before it was redeveloped, along with 1990s hairstyles and fashion.

There is also a glimpse of lost Norwich shops such as Hovells on Bedford Street and Dixons.

In some ways the ancient streets have not changed much in the passing 25 years but the people and shops who make up the city scenes have.

  • I don't see how having a tattoo has anything to do with someone's IQ?

  • The city clocks were more accurate then! Couldn't have been that warm for June, judging by the number of coats on show! No-one gormlessly staring at a mobile phone whilst walking along and no awful leggings being worn! Fascinating video though - thank you!

  • Most people smartly dressed, no zombies staring at mobile phones, and not a tattoo in sight - how on earth have we dumbed down so much in just 25 years?

  • Hmmm dunno about better. I reckon 80% of the folks in that video are dead by now.

  • So much changes in such a short time! Why does Norwich always appear and seem better in past times! I believe for much its the people who live there!

  • Some nice shell suits back then. Other than that, not much changed really. The only difference are the faces on the masses pointing forwards instead of downwardly glued to a bloody smartphone!

  • Wow another Evening News story created from old content found via Google! A bonus for you Tom Bristow! Archant, you really need to think long and hard whether it's worth carrying on really. Either that or stop the work experience kids coming up with your content.

  • Strange to see people walking around with no-one staring into a mobile phone. It's not as though the world ground to a halt then either!
