  2. Market Place Club - Early Warning Siren?

    Moe 19, I remember going into the 'ford COOP with my Grandma. The smells of the "store" are still in my memory. I also was fascinated by the wire transmission equipment. Could the "thing" on the roof, be a bell tower? For what use I have no idea whatsover.

  7. I remember a guy called Tommy Darling (No3?) who ran a shop down at Grange Park back in the '60s, can't for the life of me remember what he dealt in, just that he was a nice guy. He was a friend of my fathers.

    HPW, Vic was right about blueprints, it was the way/method of printing them with wet chemicals, hence the reaction that Vic suffered. Don't ask me what the chemicals were, but I think there was ammonia in there somewhere due to the smell. "Drawings" are still to this day occasionally referred to as blueprints, but they are now mainly laser printed. Don't berate yourself, HPW, the job you did was very highly skilled, just in a different way. If you made a mistake someone could get badly hurt or worse! A lot of my family on my mums side were miners, so I am aware and in awe at what you guys did. I look forward to your memories on here, it brings me down to earth, and it makes me laugh at the antics you got up to. Especially that bit about buses and bait bags, that did tickle me. I would like to meet up with you for a natter when I am up Bedders way next. Might be this summer, I will message you if I decide to come up.

    Hi HPW, as an engineer/toolmaker I used logs and antilogs to work out trigonometry on a daily basis until calculators were common place.
  12. Skoda Yeti

    Above all, it's a Volkswagen! Will Germany still sell us the spares, or become all petulant and throw "Herr Teddy" out of pram. CL, myself I favour the Kia marque. Have a close look at the range, you may be pleasantly surprised.
  13. Post Referendum.

    Now we have kicked Europe into touch, we could NOW become 51st State of U.S.A. Imagine Boris and Trump together. On a more sensible note, I think the current political parties will need to change drastically, in particular, Labour.
