HIS SITE HAS HAD BIG PROBLEMS, TOO MANY HITS AND TOO MANY PEOPLE DOWNLOADING ALL THE IMAGES!!! NOTE: DUE TO THE ABOVE PROBLEMS, MUCH OF THE PHOTOGRAPHIC MATERIAL IS NOW AVAILABLE ON CD - SCANNED TO A MUCH HIGHER RESOLUTION TO PRINT OUT UP TO A STAGGERING 20" by 30" IN SOME CASES - PHONE/E-MAIL FOR DETAILS - VERY LOW PRICES - AIMING NOT TO MAKE MONEY, BUT TO SPREAD THE COMMON BASE OF HISTORY! SOME CDs ARE JUST CD VERSIONS OF THE WEB SITE, SAVES YOU TIME AND BEATS THE BROKEN LINKS, HOWEVER, MANY HAVE EXTRA, BONUS IMAGES, OR THE SAME IMAGES .. YOU CAN EVEN SEE THE SAILORS THROUGH THE BRIDGE WINDOWS!!SOME IMAGES ARE UP TO 12MB, SO YOU CAN GUESS THE QUALITY!! MY AIM IS TO GIVE YOU A CD, EASY TO USE, THAT WILL GIVE YOU HOURS & HOURS OF INTEREST & PLEASURE AS YOU PRINT OUT THE STUNNING IMAGES TO BIG SIZE... ALL CDs CONTAIN DOZENS OF QUALITY HISTORICAL IMAGES.Next is another busy and hectic scene on the pebble beach of MOUNT BATTEN to the east of PLYMOUTH with STAMFORD FORT looking down from above.Now we are going to but a ticket on the public foot ferry from TURNCHAPEL, across the CATTEWATER to PHOENIX WHARF, PLYMOUTH, even today you can do this trip, but with a slightly different pick up and put down location.HM Submarines Orpheus and Narwhal are seen here in 1975. Am amazing image here c1970s of Plymstock Cement Works - this scene is now 100% gone!I am very sad to record the passing of Plymouth wreck diver and historian, Peter Mitchell at the young age of 68.Te original scan is 40mb, too big to host here, but this shrunk version is still pretty good.
Here is 1968 photo of Plymouth City Centre taken from Cattedown and Victoria Wharves.Very high photographs of ORESTON RAILWAY STATION and YEALMPTON RAILWAY STATION c 1950s, early 1960s.A look at the wartime visit of GENERAL DEGAULLE to PLYMOUTH and his visit to the Surcouf and the only land based, UK, action of WORLD WAR 2.Recently a hoard of WORLD WAR 2 no 76 SIP grenades were found in busy Plymouth, that cased traffic chaos......here.
I am putting most of my new stuff, and there is LOADS!!!Moving along we have a cracking photo of MARSH MILLS in PLYMOUTH showing the LAIRA BATTERY and EFFORT FORT.
