The thing is that I once bought / found an original, non-sarcastic similarly styled post card of our beloved Loughborough, which did feature a car park (as the market place was then), one of the uglier buildings at the Uni, a pub (the Boat), and I can't remember what the last one was. Part of me thinks it was the Carillon (war memorial) the other part thinks it was something far more grim. Might try and dig it out.
