Hiya PhilBee (whoever you are) Nice set of photos and great to see another user taking advantage of the text capacity of the comments and description facility to describe the photos. You can write a book on Panoramio!

I am user 1283331. And the moderators know me and the use I am putting Panoramio to. Not too many sunset and rainbow photos!


Are you aware that this old brick building still houses two 1916 vintage Haslam ammonia compressors from the early days of the Belfast Meat works of Canterbury Frozen Meat Co. One of these machines can and is still occasionally run. And appears here;

I have a page devoted to these machines;

and am organising for friends to see the machine running February 17th.
