Might be J.A. Lawton, whose Liverpool and London carriage works were among the most highly rated in the country at that time.

It's my understanding that Lawton Company commissioned the Westminster Coach Works in 1913 from a design by Philip Lockwood.

Lawton built some magnificent automobiles - there's even a Lawton-bodied Rolls Royce in the Blackhawk Museum here in California.

Hope this helps.

Greetings from northern California,


The construction of the present Chester cathedral dates from the C13th and continued until the dissolution of the monastery by King Henry VIII in 1538. A major restoration incorporating neo-gothic features was undertaken by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the late C19th. You can read a comprehensive history of the cathedral here.

The legend of the plaque above the door of the tower reads "King Charles stood on this tower Sept. 24. 1645, and saw his army defeated on Rowton Moor". You can read about the history of this tower here.

FORMIDABLE ......*****

You can take a virtual guided walk around the city walls of Chester here - a superb web-site with words and pictures by Steve Howe of the Black and White Picture Place that provides a comprehensive introduction to the city.

Thank you, Andres and Epi. There is nothing quite like a clear morning after the end of a snowstorm! It is usually colder then--the clear air is the result of a cold front connected with a high pressure system--but the beauty more than makes up for the additional cold. Andres, it's an experience worth arranging!

Greetings, Marilyn

I was reliabley informed by a Swiss chap that rooms start at around S$300 My camera takes nice night shots I just help it!!!;)

I'm not sure I deserve such high praise. Most of my wildlife shots were taken when I spotted some interesting wildlife accidentally, although of course I've been to places like Skomer Island on purpose hoping to photo birds.

Some of the insect shots were taken in my garden which required some patience but more importantly I had to shut out of my mind what the neighbours thought of me.

As for technical expertise I'm afraid it's all down to the camera. Wildlife shots require use of zoom usually, you might need a steasdy grip as you take the focus and exposure centering on the subject. Also most of my shots are taken on th eAutomatic setting. Recently having had this camera for about 4 years I decided to read the manual (this was partly inspired by my jealousy of a certain photographer who's nearly had more new digital cameras than I've had hot dinners(!), I thought I'd try to really utilise my present camera to the full before buying a new one to compete with my consumerist friend!). I've tried latley to get more depth of field by using Aperture priority with debateable success.
