And I’m so pleased to find this This is one of the machines they use for making rock – I remember being fascinated by the way it span!

Humber Bridge

As I think I’ve mentioned before, I’ve never seen the Humber Bridge complete. This is what the pylons looked like in 1974.

"Malham, 1950"

From a trip to Malham in the Yorkshire Dales in 1950, quite possibly Youth Hostelling.
Not really sure where this waterfall is, as a quick Google search for waterfalls in Malham doesn’t come back with anything looking much like this. It would seem that Malham is close to Gordale Scar (it’s not an area I know at all), but there is a different photo that looks like the waterfall there. Any ideas anyone?
