Abbey Road - 1930's

This is an evocation of my home town in the 1930's. Most of the architecture is intact though the trees and street details have changed. The trams had recently gone and the track hastily replaced with a concrete strip, though the electification posts continued to light the streets for a while. A sneaky way of researching historic subjects is to exhibit a sketchy version of your idea and wait for the experts to tell you what you have got wrong.
