History IS interesting (sometimes!)

Back again. I often have interesting little chats with Mark at work about matters historical...the other day he showed me a photo of the port, which didn't have the Port Loop Road on it. It looked SO strange. So we got to chatting about when the Port Loop Road must have been built and how long it probably took, and a couple of days later he brought me this from the museum...

So, apparently it was built in 1972 (two years before I was even thought of, ha ha ha), and was a mammoth task at the time. How cool is this photo? I think it's really cool to know a bit about what's around you, you know? More soon. Toodles, B x
