Today I paid a brief visit to the 1950s Day to take a few pictures for this blog and I have a few nice ones of Trams, Buses and Rock'nRoll but I continue to be ashamed of the Museum's complete lack of customer care so I have published these pictures instead.
1. Modern cars parked on the pavement for at least 31 minutes and 15 seconds. Where are we supposed to walk? What is the clearance for the tram? Why didn't all the tram drivers slow right down as this one did?
2. Did the road vehicles have to pass each other at this narrow point?
3. Customers forced to walk in the roadway.
4. I measured the distance between the outer edge of the tram line and the blue stall. It was 3 feet 7 inches. The stall holder saw me doing this and told me he had been told to put his stall there against his better judgement because of the blind spot. Don't foget that the stall holders are customers as well.
Thanks for the comments. I will try and send some pictures from Siberia - see link above.
Finally there is a picture of me working at Crich on page 138 of The Journal. More recently I have done some behind the scenes work and raised a few 'bob' for the funds.
