Thumbs up.png This file is truly delightful.
It is likely to bring a smile to your face, probably because it contains the sort of thing that makes trawling through dusty archive documents worthwhile. The thing in this file that makes your day might actually have nothing to do with its subject matter.


The Belfast Urban Motorway (rather amusingly referred to as "BUM") was Belfast's attempt to join the Urban Motorway club. Not surprisingly, only a short length across the north side of the scheme has been constructed, and even then not as planned.
