Thanks Suzy.... Fascinating to see the model then the bits of timber and chain, all that's left.... Excellent shot on the timber and chain.... Very professional.... :) :)
Very interesting punkie.
Oops Shirl, it was Punkin, not moi! I melt if I get wet and wouldn't chance being around an incoming tide.
Lol, good story
Interesting story, muffin, so glad you made it back with that brick.
Thanks. muffin. You are correct. I tried to wipe of the salt "air"....it just made it worse!!!!
However, you can see the lower two towers (now in the Atlantic Ocean) and the upper towers (have posted one w/ the chains).
When we first "discovered:" Marconi station, there were bricks down on the beach from the original strucure. The love of my life wanted a brick. So....we drove to an access....then walked, and walked and walked.....I realized the tide was coming IN, and that we hadn't checked the tide charts. Our trip back (WITH a brick!!!) was at a very rapid pace.
Interesting! Thanks, Suzy!
Good point, muffin!
Punkin doesn't travel with Windex
Why didn't you clean it before you took the picture?
This model is an amazing look at the first transatlantic transmission from the US to England. It is difficult to see due to the grime on the cover to the display.
