Very nostalgic, but not taken (as it states) in 2013, to be sure.

I've changed it to an approximate, but there's no option for "sometime in" or "date unknown".

If only we could so easily reset the date that WE are in.

I wouldn't like to be back then. They were difficult times for me. Let me just reset my age.

To me, this looks more like the 1960's or early 1970's than 1984, but then nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

No, this is definitely 1984. It hasn't changed that much,
because John Conway (Searoom) moored there earlier this year.

I was there last month. I first discovered it in 1975. It's lost some of that rustic innocence, but what place hasn't?

Your early pictures have that muted look of early 1960's colour film. Have the negatives or slides been scanned using a high-resolution film scanner? They would need to be to recapture their full, original detail and quality.

Scanned prints. That's why they're not very sharp. John thought this was a painting!

Where are the negatives?? (They no doubt vanished at some time over the last 30 years, as negatives tend to do. Even some of mine have, mysteriously,)
