  1. Another scene swallowed up by 'progress' and 'development'. Having had a look round the google view, then it looks like there might be some remnants of the past in the parade of shops next to the Blue Dragon laundry.

  2. The camera gives a false perspective making the road look like a hill, but the landscape is clearly very flat. And very cluttered now too.
