'Twas many, many years ago now - way back at the end of 1972 or very early in '73 if I recall correctly. It was late afternoon and beginning to get dark, and the street lights had already sprung to life in order to pierce the gloom of the advancing blackness. Did a recently fallen thin covering of rain adorn the pavements and roads, reflecting the gleam of the lamps in their twinkling surface? I no longer remember with certainty, but there could well have been.
P.S. I've borrowed the accompanying photo from the Internet, as I haven't had time to take my own yet. When I do, I'll replace it.
