There wasn’t a lot of traffic….

A former resident of Talog recalls that, when she moved to the area some 30 years ago,  there wasn’t a lot of traffic through the village. Some children used to string a net across the road by the petrol pumps, and play tennis. This practice has now died out …. due to increased traffic, and the “children” are now adults.
