Shoe Tree in Armstrong Park, but nothing decent in size 8.

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Local tradition is that after exams finish the kids throw their shoes in the tree. After the original shoe tree had to be felled, the council now harvest the shoes annually.

I have a size 8, black leather half boot, velcro 'cross-over' , going cheap (only the right one - you will have to hop!)

Very good photo renditiom, one can see the markings on the trainers so well

Nice one Keith !

Thanks Mike, but I will pass on the boot. ;)

The photo came out better than expected and I was fortunate with the light. Cheers.

I would have expected Mike to have given you the boot Keith!

Too many folks watched Wag the Dog.

Strange indeed. This was only one branch of a very big sycamore, but it was also the only branch I could take that wasn't straight into the sun. Cheers.
