Can you spot your house from these aerial photos of Exmouth captured in 1993?

This brilliant series of black and white aerial photos by former Journal photographer Julie Hodge shows just how Exmouth has changed over the past 25 years.

In one of the pictures you can see what the current site of Marks and Spencer Food Hall near the train station used to look like from above. Another thing that really stands out from these images is just how few vehicles that are on the road and parked up.

Is your house or business pictured in these photos? Why not share your memories of Exmouth from days gone by with our nostalgia Facebook group - Devon Memories.

We love seeing old photographs of Exmouth sent in by our readers. To share your own pictures from the past with the Journal and its readers simply visit our photo-sharing website - iwitness24.co.uk and upload them to the East Devon ‘nostalgia’ group and they may appear in the paper (online/in print).
