    Thanks Colin, great images once again. I notice the original H.Rowse design had a much lower balustrade crowning the tunnel in the image. Also the bronze statues commemorating both the King and Queen have still yet to be installed.

    It's a pity they [council, I assume] removed the taller ornaments flanking the tunnel and the main central arrangement.

    Got to love those early 30's cars though...classics, them all.
