Northumberland Street

I remembered the other day that Northumberland Street used to have traffic on it. Two lanes, either edge. By the time I moved here (originally in 1994) they weren't used by anything but police cars and taxis, I think, but I'd forgotten that they were even there.

Anyone who can find a photo of this will win my undying admiration.

Nah, sorry, too old :) What I'd like to see is photos from when it was mostly pedestrianised but with the two lanes down either side. Seems bizarre that I can find really old photos but not ones from 15 or so years ago.

Thanks for those though, I'd found some old ones but those are actually better :) You still win my undying admiration ;)
