There has been an attempted armed robbery in a bookmakers in Plymouth.

Though it wasn't said in the headline, I could tell from the picture that it was an English south coast port.

They all look very similar, I thought to myself, -- Portsmouth, Plymouth, Southampton -- all 1950s and 60s, seemingly put up in a hurry, with an odd speck of an older building cropping up in the oddest of places.

Not so odd when you think about it. History really is everywhere, isn't it? Thinking of all that heartache monumentalised in those flat rooved pebble dashed wide parades.
