Vic Berry's Scrapyard Leicester 31 May 1987

The mangled remains of Class 40 and 25 cabs litter the foreground of this view of Vic Berry's Scrapyard, Leicester, on 31 May 1987. A still complete Class 25 can be seen amid the coach bodies in the background. Just visible in the far distance on the right is the replica of New York's Statue of Liberty, standing on top of the old Liberty shoe factory in Eastern Boulevard. This building was demolished in 2002, but the statue was saved, and can now be seen at the junction of Upperton Road and Western Boulevard.
