And these pictures, taken by our former photographer Dennis Lound in 1995, show just how much the borough had changed.
In the second set of pictures, Dennis’ pictures provide a reminder of how Doncaster Rovers’ former Belle Vue stadium looked before it was replaced by the new Keepmoat Stadium at Lakeside, and indeed a glance at the former Tattersfield rugby league ground, near Bentley.
They also show how different the waterfront looks since the Doncaster College hub and North Bridge were opened, and how Wheatley Hall Road looked in the days of Du Pont.
In these confusing and worrying times, local journalism is more vital than ever. Thanks to everyone who helps us ask the questions that matter by taking out a subscription or buying a paper. We stand together. Nancy Fielder, editor.
