    Complete Mystery Photo - Any Thoughts/Ideas?

    Tough one that Mark. I would guess that the photo is the 1890's period. Another Clue is that the West Lancashire Railways was taken over in 1897 by the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway. No idea on the actual location though.

    FA cup and Liverpool

    Its a secondary Trophy that has lost its shine in recent years. The clear priority for Liverpool is the Premier League.

    People's History Museum - Manchester

    Oh and I forgot about this highlight!!!!!
  9. I visited this fairly new museum last Saturday which is located in the city Centre, next to the River Irwell. This museum tells the story of the history of democracy in Great Britain and about people's lives at home, work and leisure over the last 200 years. The collection contains printed material, physical objects and photographs of people at work, rest and play. Some of the topics covered include popular radicalism, the Peterloo Massacre, 19th century trade unionism, the women's suffrage movement, dockers, the cooperative movement, the 1945 general election, and football. It also includes material relating to friendly societies, the welfare movement and advances in the lives of working people. The building itself is highly modern and is bolted onto an older engine house. Inside there is a good modern café and a small shop. The museum is free to enter but you can donate cash. The highlight for me was the large colourful and ornate marching banners that are on display. There are several guided tours available on different themes which are recommended. added 0 minutes later added 0 minutes later added 1 minute later added 2 minutes later added 2 minutes later added 2 minutes later added 3 minutes later added 3 minutes later added 4 minutes later added 4 minutes later added 4 minutes later added 5 minutes later added 5 minutes later added 6 minutes later

    To be honest some of the Political issues highlighted are pretty much the same as today. Look at the one about the tax dodger and also the one about Pensions.

    Roman Saturnalia Parade, Chester

    Last Thursday we finished off our "XMAS" shopping in Chester. Having not been to this particular Christmas market we thought that we would give it a go. One of the other reasons was the annual Roman Saturnalia Parade. Starting from in-front of the Cathedral and moving onto Eastgate Street we seen a brilliant parade. This experience merged two fantastic street parades.... The Saturnalia parade sees the Roman legion light up the streets with a torch-lit parade and the Winter Watch is a historic event when the city leaders would hand over the keys to the city watch. Tagged onto this is a street Parade celebrating the winter solstice together with druids, Haiti voodoo dead, marching band etc...……….it is well worth seeing as a spectacle. added 0 minutes later added 0 minutes later added 1 minute later added 1 minute later added 2 minutes later added 2 minutes later added 3 minutes later added 5 minutes later added 5 minutes later added 6 minutes later
