taken 3 years ago, near to South Norwood, Croydon, Great Britain

East end of Lucerne Road, Thornton Heath
East end of Lucerne Road, Thornton Heath
At the time of the photograph Lucerne Road was a two-way street, but preparations were under way to make it one-way: cars parked on both sides made it hard for vehicles coming in opposite directions to pass and the section at the east end, where the road executed a little wiggle as it crossed the Norbury Brook, was particularly awkward.
See TQ3167 : Lucerne Road, Thornton Heath for the other end of Lucerne Road, TQ3268 : Lucerne Road, Thornton Heath for its middle section, and TQ3268 : Lucerne Road: looking upstream at crossing of Norbury Brook, TQ3268 : Lucerne Road: looking upstream at crossing of Norbury Brook and TQ3268 : Lucerne Road: looking downstream at crossing of Norbury Brook for the Norbury Brook crossing.
