Those were the days - Recognition test

As time passes, we forget just how bad the roads were for cyclists in the 'good' old days. I came across this picture which is about five years old - That is Pre Cycle England.

See if you can recognize it. I found it difficult and I cycle by it weekly.

Yes, In fact the Rowditch area. Looking at the traffic lights they seem very fifties. Perhaps we survived because the traffic was slower, lighter, and mainly sober.
