Return.jpg Chris is returning to this file later.
Why this might be the case is open to all manner of unsavoury speculation, but one insuperable fact remains: Chris has taken this file out before, and he has every intention of taking it out again soon. In most cases this is because he wants camera copies and wasn't able to get them on the first attempt, but it may also be just because he misses it and longs to be near it again.


In 1970, Colin Buchanan - he of "Report" fame - prepared a long academic article for the GLC on road plans that had been made for London since 1900. It provides a comprehensive overview of every person and organisation that had made serious road plans for the city in the motor age, and how each of those plans built on those of their predecessors.
