Blimey Ray, the traffic probably looked similar a week or so back mate
I have always been amaised that it was never hit in the last war!
Never got hit? Read the links!
Interesting to look at the cars in the old photos. Puts a date perspective into the frame.
Then, I could actually drive into London and park within a few yards of where I wanted to go.
Now, I can’t even get into the city without a 15 quid congestion charge, and that’s after I’ve driven through 25 miles of confusing road signs - sometimes at least six on a single post - speed cameras, traffic light cameras, dedicated cycle lanes and bus lanes. And if you do get there safely there’s always some jumped-up little traffic warden waiting to get your car towed away. They take no prisoners, their bonus seems to depend on it
Probably after the current problems it’ll be bikes only
However, as I don’t have to work there anymore I just hang a camera around my neck, park my car at the dome in Greenwich and go in by river bus, get some good views from that. I pretend I’m a Tourist. I recommend it.
