Car smashes into shop window 76 years after identical crash

Tom Webster

When a car smashed into a shop window in Bedford last week, it seemed nothing more than an unfortunate and embarrassing one-off accident.

That is until the son of the man that owned the electrical store back in the 1930s spotted the incident and brought in a photo of the shop in 1935 – also with a car 'parked' through the front window.
