Apologies again, again & again for some of the sites going down.
WITH LUCK - YOU DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT - ORDER A CUSTOM CONTENT CD! , SO I SHIFT AND SHIFT AGAIN, SO IF ANY LINKS TO IMAGES DO NOT WORK, LET ME KNOW, IT`S NOT EASY RE-UPLOADING THIS LOT!!
BY POPULAR REQUEST: ABOVE: this scan of Penlee Battery near Plymouth Sound - taken in 1920`s at start of Admiral`s Cup Yacht Race. These two images of Brading Signal Box on the Isle of Wight show well the effect of time, from 1986 to 2006.
Alternative scan here and a lovely wild orchid growing on site is here. The two sailing vessel photos are from the CD collections, (see below notices), sample images can be downloaded by clicking on them - about 1.2mb WANTED: IMAGES OF LEIGHAM MANOR (aka Tecalemit House), MARSH MILLS, COYPOOL -any time until the mid 1980s & PENLEE & RAME CHURCH COASTAL DEFENCE BATTERIES up to and incl 1970s PLUS anything at all about the Van Dike rock club in Plymouth, posters and gig photos. We have had two Gulf Wars, 9/11, Lady Di`s death, my son becoming a man, meeting my wife - becoming grandparents, myself ageing, wrinkles, grey hair , the death of my mother, and now my father, two Grandsons born - so this is time....
Next is another busy and hectic scene on the pebble beach of MOUNT BATTEN to the east of PLYMOUTH with STAMFORD FORT looking down from above.
Now we are going to but a ticket on the public foot ferry from TURNCHAPEL, across the CATTEWATER to PHOENIX WHARF, PLYMOUTH, even today you can do this trip, but with a slightly different pick up and put down location.
