It was much smaller and the sea came to Lobres. It only had houses, there weren't any buildings. Now there are some blocks of flats. There were very few shops. but now there enough for all town.
Transport is similar. There was a bus station and taxis, altrough there were very few, but now there are many. Before there were many cars, only the people with more money town.
Nobody in my family lived in the town 50 years ago. But I think that there wasn't much to do then. It would a cinema, an health centre, a café... It woud also a museum and a castle. The castle exist now.
In conclusion, life beforewas harder and poorer, but now it's all in need.
