Penandrea mine chimney, Redruth, Cornwall.

Penandrea mine chimney, Redruth, Cornwall.
A tin mine slap bang in the middle of town! Now its chimney is a pleasing feature and landmark but this would have been Hell on Earth in about 1840!
A mine in operation for copper and tin from the early 18th century and possibly much earlier until it was shut down in 1891.

That was generous Andy. I think I might have at least let him know I knew what he had done. !

Well, Pam ... I was flying back to Madrid the following day and didn't have the time. In a different mood, I might have done! Especially so as the estate agency (realtor to you!) is one of the biggest in the area and that a senior member of the firm and a member of the founding family worked behind the bar with me at a pub in Zennor one summer in the late 70s! I didn't stay in touch but I know people (family) who did! One day when I have time on my hands and feel like a moan I just might make contact!!! (not!!)

Yes, sorry Pam, I momentarily forgot!
I am ever conscious of the differences between British English and American English in the classes I give. I have some students that only want American spellings, grammar (there are a few differences - on/at the weekend, etc.) and pronunciation and some who prefer the British versions. Most, thankfully, aren't bothered!

Quite a landmark. Cornwall looks fascinating. I've only been once and you are showing me what I've missed. A bit annoying about the estate agent. I like it if people ask but I'm a bit like Judith. Only once really annoyed when someone reposted a bird photo adding a four letter word caption.

I have been asked a few times (on Pano) - sometimes by geology students and of course I said 'yes' every time!

I would have raised a stink about the photo. Nice shot and reminds me of some happy holidays in Cornwall.

... a really nicely composed photograph: great elements throughout ...

(N.B. -- I bought a Photoshop program just so I could watermark my uploads, because of the looting of photos at the demise of Panoramio: it was just irritating to me. But I cannot get the darn program to work; certainly wish I could, so that I can start uploading on IP again.)
