One day last week, I came away from a job in this street, to see this, as rain began to tap on my car windscreen. It made me think, as I viewed this shot this morning: how many rainbows have passed over those houses since they were built? Two world wars have been fought. Those telephone lines have appeared, and now they carry this thing we call broadband. The TV aerials might have appeared in the 1950s at the earliest. There were cars in the street, too (remember, these houses were probably built before Benz and Daimler made one in 1885!)
And rainbows have come and gone.
