He has done more than anyone else to ensure the preservation of colour images from the early days of railway colour photography. His book contains a colour portrait of the wonderful chap. Died 11 June aged Early user of colour film. Whitehouse took up railway photography in the s, but soon abandoned the traditional three-quarters front view of the passing train and began to favour the ‘pictorial’ shot, in which setting was as important as the subject. Encouraged by ‘Cam’ Camwell he also photographed what were then considered unusual subjects: Initially, the equipment Whitehouse used was rudimentary, but a simple Coronet box camera was soon replaced by a folding Kodak, a gift from his grandmother. In later years he progressed to increasingly sophisticated apparatus, culminating in a 35mm Leica and a medium format Rolleiflex. Whitehouse served as a navigator in the RAF during the Second World War and on demobilisation a Kodak BB Junior cine camera, left to him in his grandmother’s will, widened his interest to encompass moving film. In the late s and s he partnered a fellow member of the Railway Photographic Society, John Adams , in the BBC television series Railway Roundabout and together they began to publish railway books illustrated by their own photographs.

If the Olympics has taught me one thing it is that there is a lot of confusion about how to use both Oyster and a paper ticket on a journey from outside London. Other potentially useful stations are just one stop outside the Oyster area eg Epsom or Potters Bar. When you want to use a Travelcard on Oyster A travelcard on Oyster is exactly the same as a travelcard on paper.
43rd Anti-Aircraft Brigade Company, Royal Army Service Corps served with 43rd Anti-Aircraft Brigade.

Above Meath Green near Horley , the terrace corresponds to the flood plain of the river, however from this point downstream to Brockham, the river cuts a narrow trench no more than m wide. A similar trench is runs up several of the Mole’s tributaries, notably along Deanoak Brook which follows a local strike. The presence of the trench protects the land from flooding rendering it suitable for agriculture. The bedrock is permeable chalk and the water table lies permanently below the level of the riverbed, allowing water to drain out of the river through swallow holes in the bed and banks.
At this point that the water table rises enough for the water to flow back into the main river channel. Fagg identified 25 active swallow holes between Dorking and Mickleham ; most were only a few centimetres in diameter and were located in the vertical banks of the river below the water line. Initially the surveyors tried to fill the holes with rubble to prevent the foundations of the new road subsiding. However this proved to be impractical and they were instead covered by concrete domes, up to 18 m in diameter, each fully supported by the surrounding chalk and provided with a manhole and access shaft to allow periodic inspection.
In this manner it goes away, lessening the stream for above a mile, near two, and these they call the Swallows. Not all of the water removed from the river by the swallow holes is returned to the channel at Leatherhead. The chalk aquifer also feeds the springs at the southern end of Fetcham Mill Pond, which have never been known to run dry.

Bruce Schultz came down from Ohio back in the day when hanging out at the station for long enough would get you hired. I remember that when he did this, we were faced with a longer than average lull in our hiring and he stuck in there until he got the call to the majors. Bruce and I knew each other for just under thirty years, which for two people not from the same zip code, is a very long time.
Just like anyone who works together for a long time, we had our ups and downs, but honestly, he was a good man and would do anything for you if you needed it.. So, I know you are looking at that blue Datsun B and wondering, “What the hell does a Datsun B have to do with honoring a firefighter? Instead, I posted a picture of a Datsun B in his honor. He, of anyone, would appreciate the sentiment. I remember one night, when Hilton Head Island’s night life wasn’t what it is today not that it’s roaring around here at or anything , we went to Savannah to do a little drinking and to meet some young ladies.
In those days, driving after you had a few cold ones was looked on as youthful indiscretion. When we left the bar Remington’s, for all you Savannahians I decided to go back to the Island by way of Interstate Anyone who knows Savannah knows that goes in the opposite direction from Hilton Head Island. So a few minutes into this, we realize we have gone the wrong way, and I decide that my Datsun B see above, only I couldn’t find a picture of my car in red is a four-wheel drive machine it wasn’t and I tried to cross the median at relatively high speed for a red non-four-wheel drive Datsun B

Here yesterday, gone today. Came across a copy of David Jenkinson’s The Times always thought that young Michael must be a Grauniad type for 12 May wherein young Michael amazed at improved Manchester to Brighton service via Kensington Olympia and improvements to railway catering. Away from the railway feature he was surprised at how cheaply a Professor of Philosophy could be hired then and an advertisement from the Wallop School which brings out the very worst of Master Blakemore.
“The idea of coupling the firing mechanism to the propeller’s rotation is an affectation. The objection is the same as to any gun position which is fixed along the longitudinal axis of the aircraft: the pilot is forced to fly directly at the enemy in order to fire.
The Shellraiser’s weapons fire compressed balls of garbage and manhole covers. The Party Wagon uses stink bombs and bullets made from soda and mints. There are a few arcs the series never resolved after it ended: Donatello’s search for a cure for Mutagen Man, as shortly after his appearance in Season 2, the show doesn’t ever bring up the character again, and the Retro Mutagen is focused on other characters instead. Renet, in her final appearance in the series, hints that the Turtles and her would meet again.
This never comes to pass, although Ciro Nieli has suggested it might be covered in a comic. The love triangle between Donatello, April, and Casey is never resolved, and mostly quietly dropped after Season 3 Which makes the scene from “A Foot Too Big” where April actually kisses Donnie on the lips after calling him “my mutant” seem pointless.

By now, many men will be wondering exactly how he does it. How, they will ask, could one man sweet-talk his way through every single woman in Dorking and Leatherhead? Strange to relate, front-line reports from Beatty’s former lovers suggest that he favours a rather dated, Austin Powers approach. In her autobiography, Joan Collins recalls him saying ‘What’s new, pussycat?
Ahead of the debate, Get Surrey looks a few potential grey areas regarding who will be delivering the development and what happens to the airport if planning permission isn’t granted. Who is behind the development? There are three parties behind the Fairoaks garden village vision, two of which are the current landowners, who are based in the Channel Islands.
Who is going to deliver the development? So, they are the three names, or “parties”, behind the garden village plans, but are they the ones who will deliver the proposed garden village master plan?

The Oddfellows was a Victorian self-help organisation combining the opportunity for the lower ranks and shopkeepers to socialise etc and by paying weekly or monthly subscriptions one received a disability or death benefit if and when one fell on hard times – long before Giros, DSS etc. My uncle was an Oddfellow and in more recent times it was more a social club with annual dinners e tc – bit like the Rotary and Round Table clubs.
My cousin told me that his father enrolled him and he even got a mortgage through the Oddfellows. Pippbrook House was originally built by a rich resident and the park was his private garden! We used to run round that moat AND through a tunnel underneath a kind of flat patio area on the walls of which tunnel we chalked picture of ghosts etc to scare off younger kids When my own children were kids I used to take them to Dorking and show them all kinds of interesting things including that moat and tunnel and the secret steps into Betchworth Park off Reigate Road and Portland Road where the houses are lettered instead of numbered – obviously an eccentric builder.

Wanborough, The Manor and The Great Barn In the Cistercian monks from Waverley Abbey near Farnham built a great barn in which to store the annual harvest of arable crops and sheep fleeces from Wanborough manor which the order controlled. The Cistercian system of recruiting lay brothers, who were men lacking the education to become fully fledged monks but who wanted the discipline of religious life, enabled large farming operations to be run efficiently and dependably for the order under the supervision of a bailiff.
The Abbey secured the right to hold an annual fair at Wanborough for three days from August 23rd and also provided for a piepowder court 1 to settle trading and other offences. The Great Barn was constructed from huge oak timbers, much of which is still in place today. The original external covering was made of vertical boarding although today this has been replaced with weatherboarding.
The building has been extended in more recent times with work undertaken in and the early 19th century. Alongside the barn is a granary which was built at the end of the 18th century, although its original position was in the front of the manor house. The granary has been converted to provide toilet and kitchen facilities to the barn which can be hired for special functions. Now in the care of Guildford Borough Council the barn is opened to the public periodically throughout the summer with open days coordinated by the Puttenham and Wanborough History Society.
