oh yes mike her hundreds of photos were all on glass plate...remarkabe work... such a pity that she died relatively young...she could have gone on for many more years...but we must be grateful for what we have of her work..
I have worked with glass plates, interesting but long winded. Good evening everyone. I was looking forward to an Ostrich Burger in Solihull earlier. But they were so small and certainly not worth a fiver.
Evening all ,late tonight,last evening finished putting up christmas decorations ,santa's grotto's got nothing on our house,5 sets of light's downstairs ,and it's only a small house .my wife say's it's not finished yet.
Hi Joe, I bet it looks great, I still have that pleasure. It looks like being this weekend. We've had yet another new tree. I can't wait. As long as Jo is happy, then I am. (my smilies have discapeared again).
Hi Joe, our Chritmas do last Friday was very good, only 12 of us but in a room with about 150 people. Good food and service everyone was very friendly an I left about 12.30. It was at the Holiday Inn in Solihull.
Quite a few years back jan bought a real little christmas tree only about 1 foot high planted it in the garden after christmas it's now taller than me ,and every year get's covered in outdoor light's always get people saying how good it look's.
