Thanks Professor Walshy.
I've been editing rather than posting.
I posted some photos from "The Miller's Tale" in the Bibby post on page 3 of the Local Companies thread last month.
It was an amazing set of buildings to work in.
I posted a couple of photos of the Algeciras on the dockers thread last week.It was its first UK call at the London Gateway.
The docks/companies threads have been getting , in total, about a thousand hits a week for the past 12 months.
They'll be coming mainly from web browsers, which was what I always wanted.
Best Regards
Dan

That's a very strange post but you probably have a special angelic number! Have you read anything about 1122 angel number? I am sure you should learn more about numerology because it literally changed my life. Now I see a new me who is much better than old me. I think you have to look at it and make your conclusions.

Loving this Memory Lane thread Dan, thanks.
Pretty sure the little boy John in the pic with the puppet grew up to be the local professional comedian John Martin. Think his dad George was in the ambulance service.
