Outside the Queen's Hotel in Leeds city centre there is an entire street made of rubber cobbles.

This was to deaden the racket of the coaches and carts going to and from the railway station so as not to wake the guests.

They're still there.

I will get into Leeds soon and take some pics. Then I will try to post them.

This could result in my pissing off everybody on the site by asking stupid questions then being arrested as a hacker when the pics appear mysteriously on the Pentagon website or somewhere, but hey ho.

Quarter past five in the evening, according to EXIF science. The sun stays lower for longer, this weather.
