A friend of mine in England, went back to the spot the photo was taken, as near as he could judge it, and took a new shot. He then overlaid one with the other into a sort of forty five year time-lapse. The roofline on the houses matches pretty well, as does the remains of the telegragh pole.

Just decided to pull it out and look this morning... It's one of the few pics I have of him. He was a great guy.

Anyhow... figured I would bore you guys with a pic of an old man none of you know.

Now, that is very, very cool.

As a matter of interest, where is that?

After 50 posts, it got old, anyway, you wanted me to say WGAF.
I was almost amused at the orgasmic response a 70 year old pic got...it was likee listening to a bunch of old women cooing over a 2 day old baby.

A WGAF every so often in this thread is probably a good thing.

Nutek and I are about the same age, so I found his post very interesting. Now, unless you want my virtual Tony Lama planted squarely up your cyber-pass, you'll kindly bore off.

That was taken out back of his house in Bristol.
