Your series of revisiting circuits of days gone by continues to fascinate, particularly the comparative photos of then and now, Montlhéry in your March issue being a case in point. I do hope your visits are well ahead of publication as not everything lasts for ever. There is much truth in your photographer Andrew Yeadon’s comment that “the French never pull anything down. They just build round it”. However, not so at Rouen-les-Essarts, as featured in your May ’98 issue, I fear. Friends in that area have told me that some time last year the pits and tribune buildings either side of the N138 were demolished for safety reasons.
I am, yours, etc.
