As I have yet to notice an abundance of new greenery and trees in the city centre, I am presuming Centro are waiting until the tramlines
are nearing completion before they start this mass tree planting programme.
PRIOR to the commencement of work on the city centre tramlines
, how many Sunday Mercury readers can recall the beautiful, majestic American plane trees that once lined both sides of Corporation Street?
White City A SPRAWLING holiday town, along the sweeping Coastline, The old village, cobbled streets, twisting down to the Sea-front, Penny arcades, fish and chips, bingo, the laughing Policeman, candy-floss, Tramlines
embedded in the streets, the slatted wooden Promenade, A beige-coloured ice-cream van, donkeys on the sand, Families strolling, A gray sea, sand blowing in the breeze, white flashes in A darkening sky, Gulls angry, swooping, searching, as a tram trundles past, Antennae crackling, The empty town, recall of a long time ago, amusements, Noise, laughter, A thin shower, as the girl waits.
