We have been looking for photographs showing the construction of the motorway and the early days of LFE. Presented here is a selection of what we have found. They are arranged in three sections.
The first section that we have loaded are photographs taken of, or featuring life inside, LFE itself. Click here.
The second section shows scenes from the construction of the Leicestershire section of the M1. Click here.
The third section shows scenes of early motorway motoring. Click here.
We are also trying to locate photographs available through other websites. There are also some photographs, interior and exterior, of the service station taken in 1967 that can be found here. And photographs of the construction of the railway bridge over the motorway at Whetstone can be found here. But the most remarkable set we have yet to come across, courtesy of the readers of the Loughborough Echo can be found here.
