all okay Ray. This ones back!
Those early craftsmen and craftswomen (vagabonds) you sent on a slow boat DownUnder served the churches well and we have many beautiful ones thanks to them and their English pedigree.:-):-)

Not sure if this contravenes anything but its available online so repost here.
This Salvation Army hall is I think still same as the building in place now, but now a private shop. Well the old (as we knew it growing up) 'Salvo Hall' is still there and I assume this one is same.
The building on the right is still there too and looks the same today

Nice old shot Richard. It could be a prototype mobile naafi from the Crimea war. :-). Photography-wise that is. Although I think the naafi didn’t happen till just after WW1. I like the steam engine, I remember seeing them used here until the mid 50s on my uncle’s farm for driving the big logging saw and thrashing machine - nobody seemed to worry about ‘elf-n-safety then:-)
Can you see the bloke in the front of the engine? He must be the foreman since he is wearing what looks like a bowler hat.:-)
Any chance of getting a recent shot? Always nice to compare the past with the present.

Can you post a today picture for us?

Yes. Will do. When it stops raining  :p
Agree it's good to see before and after shots.

Incidentally it's not uncommon to see those traction engines still ply the streets here.
We have a heritage rail setup nearby. I've posted photos of them before.
There's another church nearby, now converted to house, that wife and I were married in. Will see what I can drag out for that too.

St Michael & All Angels Church. Wilmington, Kent. UK.
There are lots of refs to Wilmington Kent UK on the web that I spent hours reading through - as it was my birth place. But - I could not find a nice history link to post about the church.
Also I could not find a best view to shoot from. I would like a quid for every time I have passed this church. - The Vicar might say "But you didn't call in and see me!" I might reply, "Oh yes I have Vicar, Cristenings, Marriages and Funerals!"
It seems no more nice historic and characteristic pews.

Love the keyhole window on the second shot.

You must have been a good lad. Nothing to report and make it into history  :p
Interesting about the Lychgate. Learnt something new. A resting place for the dead!

Weather been ordinary, but this shows it as of today.
Other side looks pretty shabby with 2 windows boarded up.
This side shows a mural but embarrassingly I don't know what it represents.

Old Salvation Army Hall (meeting place, worship, an everything place)

Good lad, me? Wouldn't say a 'Boo to a Goose':-)
However there are few funnies I dare not put to print.
But, I was with a group of school mates in the town one day waiting for a bus home, when my posh lady Sunday school teacher chugged up in her little Austin Seven. As she knew me she singled me out from the crowd and beckoned me over calling out Raymond! Raymond! I will give you lift home. Embarrassingly I got into the little car - All the other kids were in hysterics and taking the Pee, and calling Raymond! Raymond! Well being shy and retiring I was deeply embarrassed, red-faced and looking for a bag to put over my head. Well; as we got to the bottom of the Church Hill she said, 'Jump out Raymond and give me a push or the car won't get up the hill'. So I had to help power the bloody thing up the hill. My mum said 'Wasn't it nice of Florence to give you lift home' - PAH! Abused at such a tender young age by an older lady - no such luck today though, when I might appreciate it.:-(

Nice to see the updated picture of the Salvation Army hut. That's your task complete for the week.:-)

I was going to suggest taking a photo from the same vantage point/angle but when I had another look at the old photo, I realised it appears to be being moved. I obviously didn't look close enough the first time. Or am I losing the plot?
