I just had the sense that these two were kinda cuddled up to one another, watching the world go by. With possibly another one muscling in over their shoulders to get a view! ;)
I should work for Disney.
So it turns out Liverpool has a neat little marina in one of the old docks!
I must try out the bar there one of these evenings and see if it's in any way reminiscent of Brighton's Master Mariner . It could be very cool, very tatty, or somewhere in between in "Beefeater" style... hmm... what are the chances of anything other than the latter, oop here? ;)
Marta tells me that this packaging has been basically unchanged for years. It's nice that it now comes back into fashion as "retro". I love it. And the chocolates are pretty awesome too :)
Shame I didn't quite get the depth-of-field right. Can't be fixed since I didn't wait to check before eating some of them...
Josie patiently waiting while I take a photo of one of my favourite antique petrol stations, in Sussex. The car dates the photo to 1992-ish, and I have a feeling the station may have sadly bitten the dust by now.
As a point of geeky interest, Josie was a Mark I Landcrab (Morris 1800) from 1967. The Mark I had a number of lovely design details which were lost from later models, probably to save costs. These included chunky chrome door and handbrake handles, plus a split-bench front seat. I recently found that these seem to have lived on a little longer on Australian utility models than they did in the UK, which might be a useful lead if you're looking for spares! If I were a Mark II or III owner, I'd be sorely tempted to carefully store the plastic parts and replace them, not forgetting the delightful indicator stalk with the green light on the end!
