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....Now Andy is flying over Wales and we have Porth, the Severn Bridge, the Ramsey Island rapids...2....3....4, Gorllewin Cymru Island, HMS Monmouth returns to "Gus".is it "Guz" - Devonport & passes Drakes Island & Western Kings....2, HMS Raleigh at Trevol.
Te original scan is 40mb, too big to host here, but this shrunk version is still pretty good.
The top photo is the very high res one, the 2 smaller ones are too give you a taste. Web space issues continue, but with rising costs for web space, most of my material now goes up on my FACEBOOK page where I can upload loads for free!
Peter was a great guy, a helper, a do-er, he really loved and lived heritage. Without the support and influence of Peter, it is very probable that Cyberheritage would never have been born.
Peter will live on through his DVDs, his Wreckers Guide books and his web site, A stunning shot looking towards Plymouth Sound from Penlee Villas - now very much an urban area, this looks like it was a semi rural paradise - well if you were rich anyway. Andy Amor has been flying over the D Day beaches in Northern France & The Needles.
