Photo-a-Day (Friday, 13th April, 2012)
Great photograph John, brilliant clarity.
Great shot John, much better than the one I took on 27th March`12 in our summer !! Yours was probably taken roundabout the same time as mine.
2 Million on that ???
Spot on Ernest, according to the camera information it was taken at 11 minutes past 12 on the 27th. Oh the wonders of digital, I have hundreds of photographs, taken on film in the sixties, particularly of steam trains, that I would love to have the dates and times of.
This is lovely. Hope Helen sees it....she was hoping someone would post a photo of the bandstand.
Great photograph - I suspect the full-frame camera has something to do with it.
I've been waiting for it Irene !
Now that is really something, a very pleasing photo, thank you John.
Do you think someone, somewhere is getting the message? ...spending money on something that has got nothing to do with demolition & the retail trade !!
thought I could hear the curious tone
Of the cornet, clarinet and big trombone
Fiddle, 'cello, big bass drum
Bassoon, flute and euphonium
Far away, as in a trance
I heard the sound of the Floral Dance
The 2 million is to pay for bands to play on Sundays like they once used to do in the Good Old Days. I think the refurbishment was paid for by a lottery grant. I remember as you went through the gates there was an "unattended" canvas bag where people would throw money in.
they did a good job trimming them hedges. maggie says she could hear trombone clarinet etc im sat here and i must admit i can't hear squat diddley.
if thats a lead roof it wont be there long,
wcml i think you have a point about the lead roof im gonna scope it out to night. there should be enough lead on it to get me a good few pints . well spotted wcml
My memory is working overtime.!! Thakyou John for another super picture.
I think it's a beautiful bandstand and I sincerely hope the vandals and thieves leave it alone.
Harry, you're not even remotely funny, you sound quite pathetic really!
Well said Margaret !!
Harry are you that dirty looking scruff that goes begging round town, if so, go get cleaned up if thats possible,you will need at least 6 boxes of Brillo pads,
dirty harry,it will buy you more than a few pints,but i hope the powers that be have used there heads and put another product that looks like lead to make it look like it was origanly,that will upset the tea leafs
Dirty Harry, No wonder you cant hear with all that soil in your ears, Go get 10 baths, that may get some of the muck off, if its caked on you could use an angle grinder,
maggie,quite by chance I was surfing YOU TUBE and came across The Floral Dance,Peter Dawson 1912. I was under the impression that Brass Bands not orchestras played in the park so no cellos. Does anyone know if Lower Ince Temperance or Bickershaw Colliery played there.
