Souvenir Saturday: West Street's early days

West Street without tarmac *

  • Tarmacadam, a mainly historical tar-based material for macadamising road surfaces, patented in 1902. Now superseded by asphalt.  
  • Tarmac, term used incorrectly by news media for any paved surface of an airport, regardless of material, e.g. the airport apronstaxiways, or runways
