150 years of parking woes in London

From the LFP:

April 25, 1972 The more things change . . .

Members of the North London Merchants Association oppose city council's proposal to eliminate parking on Richmond Street. Retailers suggest traffic bottlenecks are due to delays at the CPR rail crossing. They also cite delays in providing off-street parking for balking at the changes.
The rail crossing still runs through one of London's busiest streets, although council has recently approved the controversial construction of an overpass at Hale and Trafalgar which is a good 10 or fifteen minutes from downtown where all the congestion is.

And now we have the JLC.
