Historic Photo Quiz

Can you identify a station from just a paving slab? Sadly, some people can

Excellent! Glad we're all agreed. I wonder if M&BL has picked up on it yet.
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.

I was up in town last Thursday, and I couldn't resist going to have a peek at this area to see how recognisable it is from the photo.

Virtually nothing to recognise at all. Apart from the white building in the background, and the curve of the road against the station.

It's amazing how development can totally transform an area such as this over the decades!

And yet, if the Romans came back they would recognise much of the road layout of the city within the old city walls.

The Great Fire gave them an ideal opportunity to clear away the old, cramped layout and start again. But they chose to rebuild to the old layout, and thus we have the cramped and gridlocked streets of today.
One thing only do I know, and that is that I know nothing - Socrates.
