Photos taken in 1954/1955 with a Kodak Brownie 127 camera.
Anything moving was just pot luck. The shot of the Britannia on the up Irish mail was scanned from a print measuring 2 1/2ins x 1 1/2 ins only. The music attached to this gallery is not to everyone's taste, but in case of interest it is the 1954 Chris Barber Band which I discovered at the same time.
