Old photos and the like

 A few coloured cards from the Edwardian period and slightly later, the messages on the backs are metaphorical ina bottles from around 100 years ago.
 It occurs to me that there is something in decoding what the handwriting means that you would never get with email or a social media post.
 So with this card, for instance to Ada from May or Mag two sides to decode
the detail begs a caption perhaps.
 Or these three of Wellington Crescent, producing a bizarre spot the difference.






Canterbury today where I played about with aspects of watercolour style

And then on to The Beaney where I became captivated by a cabinet of curiosities 









In the area of local news it's looking as though something may be going to happen on the Pleasurama site, obviously at the moment if development work starts there then it can only be the building out of the approved plans.

 This series of photos, zooming in on the cliff facade wall show the tell tale signs of a chalk fall behind the wall.



and finally bookshop activity pictures

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
