I discovered in the Leodis Pot Luck selection that there were plans to turn City Square into a gyratory in the 1930s

That had me looking at Leeds gyratories more generally and I see there was an Armley gyratory plan afoot in 1940

That's the one. I've various memorable cartoons from over the years which have touched on different aspects of my life and that's up there with the most memorable and - perhaps more to the point - it must chime with anybody who has ever driven in England. Think of John Major's cones hotline.

Thanks for posting this again: it always gives me a laugh.
