In a bad state of repair: Queens Road and Clarendon Park Road

You didn’t think I was talking about today, did you?  Certainly not.  From as early as 1887, with half of Clarendon Park still not built, people were already complaining about the state of the roads.

Leicester Chronicle Saturday, December 24, 1887 p5

A correspondent writes from Clarendon Park, calling attention to the bad state of Clarendon Park-road and Queen’s-road, and urging the authorities to put them in good repair and charge the owners with the cost.  He understands that part of one of these roads belongs to the borough, and thinks the town authorities ought to make their own part good.
