There's Taunton, Swansea, Dartmouth, Plymouth, Attleboro, Fairhaven, New Bedford, Somerset and much more that I can't think off the top of my head.
It's called "New England" for a reason, you know.

23rd picture down, now correct me if I'm wrong - but I'm certain that is Leeds. The torch hasn't been to Leeds yet, so they won't have done any events, I'd think it is safe to say that isn't a genuine photograph

Unlike in certain countries, we like to look after our workforce. I'm guessing they're canteens etc. Looks smarter than the usual 'demountables'.

I suspect they'll be gone once all construction is finished.

Re: tents in the Olympic Park....

As I posted on the previous page....

For London 2012, this [temporary overlay] includes more than 200,000 seats, enough tents to cover the whole of Hong Kong, and enough toilets to service the entire population of Malta...

...The Olympic Park represents a particular challenge due to its scale and complexity – around 60-70 overlay projects are required there to get it ready.


This is no different from any past Games, and the TV cameras won't show them. A lot of the tents near the entrance will be for security checking as visitors enter...

Beijing, rows of tents:



Vancouver, rows of tents:



Here's a littel article on Vancouver's tents; http://specialtyfabricsreview.com/ar..._mk_tents.html
