Any old Pics


#822

Cousin Greg, he makes no apologies.

Westway A40 being built 1968


#824

My Dad took us on holiday to that caravan site, one of the better ones…


#825

It was my Dad’s 80th on Friday so the old photos came out, as you do, but hadn’t seen this one of my mum, dad and grandparents. There were some great photos dug out.

I love old black and white pics so much - so evocative.


#826

Is that Grenfell tower on the left?


#827

Pretty sure it would be on the right, but further back


#828

If that’s looking west it’d be on the South side of the A40 .


#829

Wasn’t built 'til the mid 70s.


#830

Ah. :+1:


#831

Think it is looking into London as the train track is on the right,could be wrong though


#832

Yes looking at the map again Grenfell would be directly to the right of where this pic was taken (had it been built by then!) Was just trying to work out where it was.


#833

The shadows of the pillars in the mid-foreground say the sun (south) is to the right. So we’re looking east-ish i.e. into town. Unless the picture’s ever been flipped left-right of course.

#834

I’d say a bit south of Notting Hill. On my phone so struggling to see that well


#835

#836

I think the pic would have been taken from a tower block called Whitstable House which should’ve been completed by then & which is still there now.

How did he afford that on a conductors salary.

Deployed to see off further bus-related japes.
