The French are so full of shit.
The two most famous things about France are "The Guillotine" and The Champs-Elysees,
Turns out, they were both stolen from the English.
The Guillotine was invented in
The Boulevards of Paris were the brain child of Louis Napoleon who was exiled in Southport in 1838.
He lived near Lord Street , and when he returned to France he remodeled the city to look like that bit of Lancashire!https://www.theguardian.com/theguardian/2000/apr/25/guardianleaders
Two further twists for me.
- I was born on Lord Street in Halifax.
- Once, when visting my Dad's birthplace in Eastern Poland my family proudly showed me the village's one & only Historical Landmark.
Sometime, you cant see history?
Thinking of that track reminded me... When I lived in Boothtown years ago people would still give you directions like "turn right at the old swimming baths". The fact they'd been pulled down years ago didn't seem to matter at all.
I remember those old Baths..(I used to swim there as a kid.....)you cant get memories off a SatNav!
