  1. I took a virtual walk a little farther down the road and thoroughly enjoyed it. Wouldn't it be nice if we had a 100-year-old street view archive?

  2. It must have been difficult when the roads were all untarmac-ed, something we take very much for granted. In doing some research I was reading through a school log book from about 100 years ago and there were quite a few reports of children not getting into school (on foot obviously) because of the state of the roads, well at least that was the 'reason' given (there were also quite a lot of absences when the weather was fine too ;)).
