Righto you two, we stopped that nonsense ages ago. Just don't accept any more these days, even send them back :rolleyes:
Anyway, when they did deport they didn't appreciate the landscape,or the grub (tucker) yet alone the living quarters. We won't get started on the clothing :-)
Beer! It's only use I've known is in cooking. Some swear by beer pancakes, cakes etc
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour · ¼ cup white sugar · ¾ teaspoon baking powder · ½ teaspoon salt · 1 egg, beaten · 1 cup beer · 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Pubs, now that's another matter. Those thatched rooves and old pubs look so enticing.
You've got some beauties.

Richard, I might just try your pancake menu, sometime.:-) Please pass the indigestion tablets, someone!:-)

If you ain't careful Richard I'll post a photo of me in one of my Aussie bits.
Sweathog hoodie, Akubra titfa, Adelaide 1985 F1 GP sweatshirt or the like mate. :twisted::twisted::rolleyes:

John, If you're posting a picture of your bits may I suggest you post it to the 'Glamour and Nude' thread - Give us all a laugh.:-D:-P :p

Deacon Brodie's Tavern. July 2010. Edinburgh. Scotland. UK.

Hi Gawain. I cannot surpass your excellent and well proportioned picture but, interestingly, I have a similar shot from a slightly different angle. I should have positioned myself better.:-)

Interesting Wiki Link:- https://en.wikipedia.o​rg/wiki/William_Brodie (external link)

Times certainly have changed, Richard. One could be forgiven for thinking that the higher ones political status the more corruption and lies they get away with.:-(

To return to my previous link did you see that one of Brodie’s associates was on the run from seven years deportation?:-)

Yes that's very interesting reading Ray
Whew! What a villain and a lifestyle. :rolleyes:

Re pubs. I need to get some photos.
I was involved in two murder cases that happened in a pub and a motel here.
Correctly speaking I surveyed the scenes!
You don't forget those easily.
Next time I'm past the pub I'll get a photo. It's a very old one and I was reading about the publican who was murdered there too, so it's quite a history.

I've got many stories of my early surveying days when we'd stay in pubs. Geepers you've stirred the memory box now Ray. I could write several illustrated pages :-P

The Hawes Inn. South Queensferry. Scotland. UK.
I appears that R L Stevenson wrote some of his classic novel 'Kidnapped' from there.
We've stayed here many a time - and will do again - I hope.
Always enjoyed the historic ambiance of the area.
The hotel is only a few yards from the Forth Bridge - which, in itself, has some history. The trains can rumble a bit.:-)
The two pictures were taken on different stays - hence the eagle eyed might notice the Inn sign is different in the two pictures. We stayed in the room next to the sign.
That's SWMBO at the front door wondering when the rain is going to stop.

Keep your illustrated stories coming, Richard.:-)

Well how's that for a coincidence Ray. I mention my early stuff and you post a lovely pub on the banks of the Forth River.
It was the the Forth pub on the banks of you guessed it River Forth that my pub murder storey was about.
Downstream is Leith. I see that gets a mention in one of your links Ray.

The Kentish Yeoman. c1958. Seal. Near Sevenoaks. Kent. UK.

OhLook wrote in post #19248365 (external link)
The sight of all the ordinary modern cars parked next to those impressive old buildings in historical styles seems so incongruous.

OhLook - to partly ease the incongruity of the modern car vs old pubs on your eyes, I have gone part way by fishing this forgotten picture out of my archive. I can clearly remember taking the picture c1958 on my Leica IIIB. I have scanned it, removed a few scratches and given it a good old tweak in Photoshop (not possible at that time). Apologies for not having a better shot of the pub - I think I was more interested in the car at the time.:-) Incidentally; the price of the Bentley at the time of the picture would have been less than £1000.
XY 357. Records show it to have a 3 Litre engine and delivered to the owner in 1925.
Correct camera data Leica IIIB f2 Summar.

that's a bit of history Ray.
Beautiful in every way, pub and Bentley
British at its very best :-)

I looked at those number plates and I've some old ones of dads and thought they were Singapore. Looking at this perhaps English.

(now that's a thread - number plates! Probably not current ones! I've an original unused set in the Government envelope for the old Fergy 28 that never got fitted)
Best slip in a pub and drink to that idea Ray, have one on me at your expense of course  :p

Thanks Richard. I remembered that negative was somewhere and recently found it. I had then to remember the pub - soon located it.
I just can't remember the number plates of my old vehicles and motorbikes, we took those vehicles for granted in those days and some of us never seemed to take pictures of them - I wish I had. If I have pictures of them it is by pure chance. The registration of my new car I have put as a screen saver on my iPhone because I can never remember it when I go to a ticket machine.-?
Number plate thread? - good luck with that! I have no pics to feed that with. But I'll drink to your idea if you can send me a Sterling cheque please.:-D
Just by coincidence - there is an old thatch pub 'The Green Man' a couple of miles from me and I intended to photograph it for this thread - but a few nights ago the thatch took a lightning strike and the whole pub was sadly gutted.:-(

Ray I was about to Like your thread, still will, but I don't like all it's contents.
How sad about the Green Man's!
Sure made a mess, I looked it up.

Cheque! Ray you should know better! Soliciting ain't allowed on this forum :-P
Glory be, no wonder you people got free tickets to our great wonderland DownUnder  :p
That was a Stirling try Ray but no! :-P
