Many towns would give an arm and a leg for a wide open space like this. We covered it over with a Shopping Center that no one uses.

Comments by GW., 7th December 2017  
And when we do find a wide open space we tend to cover it in the very vehicles that got us to that wide open space DTease. As Cat Stevens once sang out " Where do the children play.....hey hey hey.....hey"..etc, etc. [or is it all about the shopping?]

what is that green car?

Comments by John Morris, 7th December 2017  johnmorrisphoto@btconnect.com 
The green car is a Triumph Stag with a hardtop fitted.

My hubby says the green car looks Italian and he hazards a guess that it is a Fiat or an Alfa Romeo. Just a guess, though.

Bring back the horse.

Comments by Garry, 7th December 2017  
Triumph Stag is without doubt.

Yes, Garry, Peter says he will go with that. Well done!

Where would they put the Parking Ticket Poet?

The market square accommodated Horses and carts well before the motor and not all that long ago and going back centuries I bet.

I am surprised that Garry has yet to jump in and tell us that the Stag was designed and styled by one Giovanni Michelotti. A very esteemed Italian Engineer and Designer who was also responsible for, amongst many many other various road going vehicles the design of the Scammel Routemaster and Trunker of the 60s.
