ARTERIAL AND TRUNK ROADS: Watling Street construction: photographs
|Location||National Archives (see all files stored here)|
|File base||Series MT, subseries MT 39|
This file is not only exactly what the title says, it doesn't even look like a standard National Archives file. Upon opening the box, you will be confronted with a photo album full of high quality black and white pictures of construction of the A2 between Dartford and Strood in the early twenties. There are some wonderful views of Rochester Cathedral and the River Medway.
A truly outstanding find.
People with Camera Copies
Ritchie Swann has some camera copies of the photos. One (of the Three Crutches Inn near Stood before work started) has been uploaded to SABRE.
