Monument Lane was built for a fairly early
exhibition just to prove you could have fog on it. It was at Ferodo
that it was first shown and proved very successful (even if the fog did leak
out over the canteen). Unfortunately the “fog” proved to be very
acidic and ate into the track and overhead wires, so the next year it ran
without the fog.
It was set in the Edwardian period with trams
running in the foreground, and trains on the viaduct to the rear.
There are many characters to be seen on the streets, including a dancing
bear, also listen out for the old street/barrel organ which used to
entertain in those days before wireless or TV were invented. Look
under the arches where work is ongoing for the markets, or people try to
keep warm on this cold winters eve.
