    Courtship of the Terns

    Robbob2010
    By Robbob2010,
    Taken yesterday at Carrmill the male Common Tern is feeding the female as part of the courting ritual. In most cases of courtship feeding,the female adopts an attitude and calls almost identical with those of a young bird begging food from its parents, and the male puts food into the female’s mouth.   Common Terns courtship feeding by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Common Terns courtship feeding by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Common Terns courtship feeding by Robbob 2010, on Flickr

    Shouldn't Throw Stones

    The view of a Night Watchman, is the culmination of a two-year project undertaken by artist Kevin Casey. Part documentary photography, part archival re-presentation and part making ends meet, as Casey’s ‘night job’ as an on-site security guard at the former Pilkington Glass Headquarters became his ‘day job’ as an artist, the work presented tells the story of an uncertain future, tense present and captivating past. The collection, including C-Type prints, archive film, projections and uncovered artefacts also testifies to the situation that Casey found himself in – part voyeur and part guardian – whilst drawing the viewers’ attention to the vicissitudes of contemporary capitalism and its contested relationship to our recent industrial and manufacturing past. Further to the works on display at Alexandra Park, visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to visit selected spaces within the former Pilkington Glass complex, designed by the mid-20th Century Architect, Edwin Maxwell Fry, of Fry and Drew. A short tour will include a visit to the modernist Tower whose Armourclad panels have dominated the skyline of St. Helen’s since the complexes construction in the late 1950s. Avinash Chandra’s back-lit, abstract relief panel of stained, fused glass and Jon Humphrey Spender’s artwork can also be viewed, as well as the panelled lift lobby, former canteen and elements of the landscaped grounds, including the north lake and concrete bridge. As much of the site is not normally publicly accessible, the exhibition and short tour provides a rare opportunity to view a Modernist landmark and exhibited materials that possess a deep local and global significance.   Pilkington Glass HQ by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Pilkington Glass HQ by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Pilkington Glass HQ by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Pilkington Glass HQ by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   22nd Feb 1962 by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr       This is a tabulator and it's something to do with the clocking in cards that reads the holes.   Tabulator by Robbob 2010, on Flickr     This below represents an onsite doctors for the workers   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Exhibition Room by Robbob 2010, on Flickr     You normally see a picture on the doors now🚹🚺   Gentlemans Lavatory by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Gentlemans Lavatory by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Reception by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Leaving Pilks by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Pilkington Glass HQ by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Pilkington Glass HQ by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Looking through by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Pilkington Glass HQ by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Pilkington Glass HQ by Robbob 2010, on Flickr     I met Kevin Casey the Night Watchman,a great bloke..Sony camera man as well which i liked,not many people i know with them. I couldn't really talk to Kevin much as a guy was chatting to him for nearly the full hour plus a few other people.Kevin still works there which i said it must be eerie but with an High-Vis and torch it goes along way patrolling he said. I thought we was going to the top of the tower but he said we can't due to health and safety. Anyway it was worth going but i hope @RATTY can take more in than i could. Thanks Kevin. Ps,i told him about this site so i hope he joins and gives more info.      

    Johnson family

    Red 45
    By Red 45,
    Hi hoping anyone can help me with a mystery that I have.   I have  William Johnson born 1887-1958 in a grave at St Helens cemetery, grave ref 47/295.  Also in the grave is a Annie Johnson, died 1963 aged 72 making her birth 1891 and I can't figure out who she is!  Williams parents were Peter JOhnson 1851-1902, and Ann Musket 1851-?. Can't be her as the birth date is wrong.  William has a sister Ann born 1879 so it can't be her either.  Other siblings include Henry Johnson born 1877 and  Jane Johsnon born 1875. Details unknown.  Can anyone help me find out who the Ann in the grave is please? William married Nellie Tonks in 1912 (his address was 168 Park Road St Helens) but she died in 1919, did William remarry? Or is there another Ann somewhere in the family born 1891? I can't seem to find anything!  Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you are descended in any way from this family or can give me advice on how to solve the mystery, I would love to hear from you!  Thank you!

    Pewfall Junction on the East Lancs

    HORT
    By HORT,
    I do not think this is a bad problem for traffic. However millions are to be spent on so called improvements. If its anything like the Millions spent on the "improvements" of the East Lancs /M6 junction its going to another waste of money that makes congestion worse than it is now. http://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/16194800.Council_receives___2_6m_for_A580_improvement_works/?ref=rss
