The last shop standing in this part of Grimesthorpe.
The buildings on the left are still there. The buildings on the right are long gone. The pub at the bottom has stop serving but the building is still there.
This was taken near the front of our family home. Some vechicles used to use it as a short cut speedway. This led to a number of accidents including my older brother and best mate getting knocked down, in the 60s and 70s respectively.
Those buildings were my old schools.

Stalin’s Rope Roads
The tramway above the steep valley mining town of Chiatura, Georgia, is a public transport system not for the feint-hearted. Chiatura is criss-crossed by the “Kanatnaya Doroga” (“rope road”), a network of Soviet-era aerial tramways. It’s still in use. In the early 20th century, after the Soviet Union seized control of leader Joseph Stalin’s native Georgia, the authorities constructed a workers’ town to mine Chiatura’s vast manganese deposits. Tramway 25 was the first passenger tramway in the USSR and has run almost continuously since its first journey in 1954.
