Yes, uniformed policemen actually did point-duty at busy junctions in the 50s. Especially at weekends and in the summer, traffic queues were common. There would be a second policeman at the intersection of Newmarket and the High Street.
Does Skipton still NOT have a proper traffic light?

KE note: Birdsall, optician & jeweller. Chadwick's, tailor & outfitter. [Admin: I assume these are two of the businesses on Swadford Street, but I'm not sure which ones.]
