Some pictures of the Moss Rose and New Moss Rose, just how many local pleasure boats there were of this name is a bit of an unknown.
This picture is of the teddy bear's picnic in Albion Gardens ten years ago, here is the link to some more pictures of this event http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/blogpicts/id41.htm local history? Well I guess it is to the children who attended it.
Canterbury today, a bit of painting and a bit of bookshoping, oh and one SD card £2 from the CEX Shop, a hot day for this sort of caper, mostly done under the air con in Chocolate Cafe.
My main book buy was about cathedrals; Winkles's Architectural and Picturesque Illustrations of the Cathedral Churches of England and Wales By Winkles, Robert Garland and illustrated by Thomas Moule 1836-8 - London published by Effingham Wilson and Charles Tilt.
Not quite old enough to be antiquarian, so a modern book, although some may think 1836 more modernish for me though much more about being a bit focused on cathedrals.
On the cathedral front I am wondering about the bronze? flags that go on the bronze lightning conductors that are on the two towers over the main door.
These towers have a bit of a history and at the time the book I just bought was published the one on the left had fallen down.
