World's First Mini-Roundabout (3) on its First Night

Notice the ghostly Policeman

This photo we believe to be taken on the first night the mini-roundabout was in place in May 1970. The blocks between the carriages are still there, but they had gone by June. Of particular interest is the ghostly policeman on the Anchor pub corner, presumably there to deal with any incidents.
