those realy take me back to christmas as a kid,Check out this great set on Flickr, including some from Christmas 1988. Look how good the decorations used to be then although i suppose you could say they were a bit tacky. Saville Street was in a bit of a state though.
Not forgetting the damage that has been done since the war.Seeing those, all I can say is; "fucking Hitler!" hno:
I still think it's a disgrace that some of British taxpayers money went on helping rebuilding Dresden's cultural buildings. If all those buildings above had survived, people from all over would flock to see Hull city centre - it's obvious loking at those why, in Portillio's train programme, he found out that 40 carriages (a day?) came over from West Yorkshire for trips to Hull.
