Carlisle Circus in Belfast before the advent of modern traffic when ladies looked elegant and horses were still beasts of burden! This looks like an early morning shot from the lens of Mr. French so he was probably on a mission to get to a few places on that same fine day?
Congratulations to all on our achieving 110 million views yesterday! As nice as it is to get to that level the contributions of our many Flickroonies are the most valuable asset so thank you one and all. A Virtual Sticky Bun with extra Toffee is on the way to each and every one!
