Indeed you can usually tell when the concepts of democracy and citizenship are weakening. There is an increase in the role of charity and in the worship of volunteerism.

Good to see a great film being honoured in the neck of the woods it made famous. The last few photos of the train line look like they should have some early 1980's gangs hanging around looking for a rumble just like the film.
Good memories! It's an awesome place to people watch. Thanks for sharing the photos.
