Earlier today, I did a post about a May Breakfast I went to in Chelmsford. It wasn't until we left, that somebody mentioned how nice the area looked since they removed all the telephone poles, and put the wires and cables underground. Once it was pointed out, I could tell the difference, and it was nice seeing how this part of the town may have looked many years ago, before electricity. Many of the buildings were there before that time.
No telephone poles! New sitting area in the old green.
Streets around the green. I must say, it looks great.
Old 1879 Town Hall was recently renovated.
(New Town Hall is in another location.)
