Norwich 1945

I was recently privileged to be loaned a document which was never intended for the public domain and which set out how it was planned for Norwich to be after the war.  

Due to bomb damage there was a perfect opportunity for a complete rethink of the City, some plans which came to fruition.  

Those of you who know Norwich will be aware that the majority of the riverside area is now given over to commercial premises and private housing.  Interesting that all those years ago the river was looked on as a public asset. 

I found this link on Flickr which might be of interest.  The pictures are taken from the 1945 document but some of them may be earlier photos.

Better than a four-leaf clover!

Not one to promote myself, I do seem to be bringing my friends who sail a certain amount of luck these days.   Looking back over photos ...
