I like the B&W ....suit this image perfectly
Bill Phillips: Thanks Shane. I thought so
Your processing is magical for this place I remember so well, Bill! Next time I'll have to drink a pint there!
Bill Phillips: It is a decent pint Ginnie. Sadly not at 19th Century prices though

I remember the fish and chips were good too.
You did a great job, this looks very old.. Amazing only few people, only the ones that 'live' there.
Bill Phillips: Indeed they were Lady P!

Your photo gives a good feel of its deep blackness - only the planes' traces at the sky remind of a modern time.
Bill Phillips: I am not going to get away with claiming they were made by the Wright Brothers

Well apart from the con trails, a timeless image showing the good old days. I've been to that pub, too. Such a shame the prices did not reflect the era.
Bill Phillips: Indeed Alan. Still they do a decent pint

Nice to see a road without parked cars!
Bill Phillips: That's for sure!
You might have to prove that some day. You have brought this scene back a century.
Bill Phillips: I can take you to some fine ale houses!
Great treatment Bill!
Bill Phillips: Cheers Martin
The h.d.r. and b/w suits this well, Bill. good one.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Frank. I should have go rid of the vapour trails!
Love it when you bring this out of the bag Bill!
Bill Phillips: That's nice to know Ronky
Northern grime is best lad. Very nice indeed.
Bill Phillips: This is the even better Midlands Grime John smile
Good God , I have only been back an hour and you have given me a headache.
Bill Phillips: Oh sod off back to Malta you miserable old goat

It sounds a good name for a pub smile
Bill Phillips: You know where you are with a name like that Anne
Mallorca you silly old sod.
Bill Phillips: Isn't Malta farther away ? If it is then that would be better
Looks a bit like Beamish museum in County Durham!
Bill Phillips: It is quite similar Tom. It's quite a long time since I went to Beamish but I imagine it has been expanded as has this place
This is like right out of an old book.
And if your lucky a lady with a cake might give you slice out in the back yard smile
Bill Phillips: And what a cake it was!
