The Mail Memory Lane feature.

Am I the only one who noticed this.

A 4 week recycle time is exceptional even for the Mail!

I could give you half a dozen such examples from recent memory but two  will do:

October 2010

November 2012

This one so good they used it thrice............

and not once did they get the location correct. The photographer is standing on the right hand side (west) of Ladysmith st. (still there today) and the street to the left is Bramley st (long gone).

The same photos keep getting recycled as the compiler gets ever more desperate in an effort  to generate  feedback.
Lately the object seems to be to cram as many small murky photos as possible on the centre pages. The quality is so bad that they need not have  bothered.

It's not unusual for the same article to appear twice in the same edition of the Mail on different pages so for photographs to reappear is to real surprise to me.
