Lovely structure, but crossing it leaves me weak at the knees…

Remember them well, thanks, George. I also remember the bike shop that was there before them - Woods. Australians, I believe.

I can still visualise the wall tiling at Gally Chipship. Unless my memory is playing tricks it was a similar vessel as the one on the half-penny (old) piece. Lovely chips as well.

You are right David not your everyday kinda sighting but I did get one the other day in Cumbria where the lady of the household was wrapped up to the nines and helping her husband (assumed) sea fish.

You came across it recently.

We should get more women out fishing - incidentally, my wife took up fishing here in America before I did. So perhaps we can say she got me into it.


Best wishes from (let me check) New Hampshire - David

No sorry I cannot remember the telegraph pole, but I was very busy at that time

Thanks Bob. It was a cold day when I took those.

Hi George

It's a technique you develop after years of trying to decipher old aerial photos. Cars, demolished buildings and whether or not folk are parked at factories all help you work out when an image was taken.

It really is a fantastic, and very valuable photo. Thank you so much for sharing this, and all your other wonderful images.

I did a post for you this lunchtime

Cheers Bob

Hi folks, scratch that - the cycling permit has been abolished now.

See here

In favour of the more sensible Greenway Code, drawn up with the London Cycling Campaign.



The bridge behind Taylor's Cafe if I'm not mistaken? Nice pic!



Brilliant. Just as a I remember it.

Thank you.
