It was a spotter’s paradise, and I wish I could have gone there more often, but as the journey involved catching a train from Leeds and changing stations at Manchester, my mother had a morbid fear that her small boy could get lost somewhere along the way. It never dawned on me that she had another, more tangible reason, like ‘Mother Love’, for example, but since she offered no other explanation, her refusal seemed very unfair. Didn’t she realise how important this was to me? But the answer was an emphatic ‘No, no, no! A few weeks later I met the doyen of young train spotters called Bonzo. Aged thirteen, he was a veritable professor on railways, who taught me all I needed to know about the Stanier ‘Black 5’ two-cylinder s with Belpaire fireboxes, tapered boilers and outside Walschaerts valve gear; the 3-cylinder express variant ‘Jubilee’ class and rebuilt ‘Royal Scots’, and the 4-cylinder ‘Princess Royal’ and ‘Coronation’ class Pacifics. The ‘Coronations’ included the ex-streamlined locos which had been stripped of their casing in , yet instantly identifiable by their bevelled smokebox tops. The LMS hierarchy was keen to have a crack at the record and upon completion of they invited the press for a special run from London Euston to Crewe on June 29th In order to get the best performance out of the loco a section of the WCML’s maximum speed limit was raised for the attempt, but it wasn’t until the special train got perilously close to Crewe that the LNER record was eventually beaten – the LMS claimed a peak of mph recorded on the chart of the loco’s speed-recorder.

Arabic , Greek , Hebrew , and Latin. Apocrypha[ edit ] The Mirror of Alchimy Speculum Alchemiae , a short treatise on the origin and composition of metals, is traditionally credited to Bacon. Stillman opined that “there is nothing in it that is characteristic of Roger Bacon’s style or ideas, nor that distinguishes it from many unimportant alchemical lucubrations of anonymous writers of the thirteenth to the sixteenth centuries”, and Muir and Lippmann also considered it a pseudepigraph.

By the late 18th century this study on Folly Bridge had become a place of pilgrimage for scientists, but the building was pulled down in to allow for road widening. Of these legends, one of the most prominent was that he created a talking brazen head which could answer any question.

The name was later anglicised and Hong Kong became the name by which the whole territory is now known. It currently has a population of about 60, and is the largest town on Hong Kong Island. The town is sheltered by the small densely populated island of Ap Lei Chau to which it has been connected by bridge since Aberdeen Promenade is on the right and the densely-populated island of Ap Lei Chau is left Aberdeen has for generations been a fishing port and home to the Tanka and Hoklo clans who originated from the mainland coastal areas of Guangdong and Fujian.

Recognisable by their large-brimmed hats these boat-dwellers were once forbidden to live on land or marry land people and were born, married and died aboard their sampans and junks. The port still has a large fishing fleet although this has been in decline in recent years. Small fishing boats sail within about nautical miles of Hong Kong in the South China Sea but some of the larger junks can sail as far as the Philippines, Malaysia and beyond.

Fishing is not the only industry in Aberdeen and the town also has shipyards, light manufacturing businesses, engineering works, textile factories and warehouses. For tourists the main attraction is the harbour and its floating restaurants. In the longer term there are plans to enhance the Wholesale Fish Market as a tourist attraction by setting up seafood restaurants within the market and providing a dining and entertainment zone along part of the waterfront of northeastern Ap Lei Chau.

Beach promenade in Rostock , Germany An esplanade or promenade is a long, open, level area, usually next to a river or large body of water, where people may walk. The historical definition of esplanade was a large, open, level area outside fortress or city walls to provide clear fields of fire for the fortress’s guns.

In modern usage the space allows people to pave the area as a pedestrian walk; esplanades are often on sea fronts, and allow walking whatever the state of the tide, without having to walk on the beach. Esplanades became popular in Victorian times when it was fashionable to visit seaside resorts. A promenade, often abbreviated to ‘ the prom’, was an area where people — couples and families especially — would go to walk for a while in order to ‘be seen’ and be considered part of ‘ society ‘.

In North America , esplanade has another meaning, being also a median strip of raised land dividing a roadway or boulevard. Sometimes they are just strips of grass, or some may have gardens and trees.

Many of the photos originally shown here, and some which remain, were taken by him years ago when he was just getting interested into railroad photography and railfanning. Understandably, the quality of some of these older photos is not high. Jones has been travelling around the Carolinas for many years hunting out present and former stations and photographing them. He has contributed several hundred excellent photos of depots and other railroad structures for this site.

Because of the higher quality of digital photography, in some cases, Mr. Jones’ photos have replaced those which originally appeared on this site.

Fishing Vessels Much of the commercial success of Berwick Shipyard was derived from building fishing vessels. Here, fishing writer and researcher Graham Toward takes a detailed look at the yard’s output over the years. The first fishing vessel to be built at Berwick Shipyard under the Fairmile ownership was completed in , and was the first of a new design class named the Fair Isle trawlers. This class was designed to replace older, larger vessels, and had much more economic running costs, and also required a smaller crew, therefore making them popular with owners.

For the next few years, the yard was kept fully occupied with these boats, turning them out at a rate of about five a year. Most of these boats were destined for Aberdeen owners, although some worked from Granton, and two were built for England. In total twenty two of them were built. This was a government financed scheme to encourage the replacement of an ageing fleet with new vessels.

I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. I loafe and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass. My tongue, every atom of my blood, form’d from this soil, this air, Born here of parents born here from parents the same, and their parents the same, I, now thirty-seven years old in perfect health begin, Hoping to cease not till death.

Creeds and schools in abeyance, Retiring back a while sufficed at what they are, but never forgotten, I harbor for good or bad, I permit to speak at every hazard, Nature without check with original energy. The atmosphere is not a perfume, it has no taste of the distillation, it is odorless, It is for my mouth forever, I am in love with it, I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked, I am mad for it to be in contact with me. Have you reckon’d a thousand acres much? Have you practis’d so long to learn to read?

Have you felt so proud to get at the meaning of poems? Stop this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin of all poems, You shall possess the good of the earth and sun, there are millions of suns left, You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books, You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me, You shall listen to all sides and filter them from your self.

There was never any more inception than there is now, Nor any more youth or age than there is now, And will never be any more perfection than there is now, Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now. Urge and urge and urge, Always the procreant urge of the world. Out of the dimness opposite equals advance, always substance and increase, always sex, Always a knit of identity, always distinction, always a breed of life. To elaborate is no avail, learn’d and unlearn’d feel that it is so.

Sure as the most certain sure, plumb in the uprights, well entretied, braced in the beams, Stout as a horse, affectionate, haughty, electrical, I and this mystery here we stand.

Many attention-seekers falsely reported they had heard noises. Others innocently reported similar noises they heard at the same time for which there will be perfectly ordinary explanations — such as military training or, indeed, fireworks. Fireworks were in Croydon pictured – but they were hardly loud enough to be heard nationwide The most persuasive of these reports was the sound recording made by Claudia Angiletta, from Croydon, South London, who said she could not see any fireworks and was therefore baffled by the noises.
