  1. A mixed bag of photos for today, taken at Ainsdale and Southport. The only information about them has come from Dad's slide catalogue. I know he and Mum had friends living in the area so I can only assume they had gone to visit them and he had taken some photos while he was there.

  6. I've had a very peaceful day with no internet or landline. All good things come to an end and normality has now been restored, so I can post some photos. A long time ago I posted photos of an arranged visit made by myself with a group of friends to Heaton depot in January 1990. Having recently been working on Dad's photos from 1990 I can now post his photos of the visit.
