A big change 1960s to 2016 (1)

What we know about this image :

This beautiful view taken in the mid 1960s shows the greatly missed Peter Pan pond and statue, the manicured grass ,tended rockeries and neat wooden benches. The rockery in the background to the left of the shelter (which was a sun trap) was also a set of 'fairy steps' much loved by children. There was another set of fairy steps behind the pond and where the photographer would be standing.
