We must be in an economic depression
We must be in an economic depression
Why do folk resort to gambling in such difficult times? To me this is the type of advertising which should be more closely regulated. Especially given the social make up of the people frequenting this bus route. See also SU6253 : Clever advertiser and SU6253 : Junk food at the bus stop.
Bus Shelter Advertising
Every working day I used to cycle past this bus shelter. Given its orientation the light was always good at the end of the day. This is one example of how Geograph has made me more aware of my surroundings. It is also an interesting insight into how clever advertisers are (not that I needed reminding) once one starts to take into account the location of the bus stop and time of year for which each advert is displayed.

In late 2011 I changed jobs, I only occasionally pass by here but I try to continue to keep the sequence ticking over.
