Pilot Boat No 2 - And A Swarm Of Locusts



No.

You're right.

That's not a swarm of locusts. It's just a very dirty n dusty slide.

I could / should clean it, and restore the slide to pristine condition .... but ... just imagine how hideously tedious that slide would be than.

Arlington


On finding this slide, I immediately started wondering about the context.

Sixties, obviously. A formal cemetery, and scaffolding for TV cameras?

Alas, with some research, this isn't anything to do with the assassination of JFK (53 years ago today).

No, it's the Tomb of the Unknowns at  Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, United States of America.

Bonus - Come on, Fair Exchange !

Two Happy Chaps


Perhaps they were at Teenage Fanclub's gig last night at Sheffield Leadmill.

Excellent night - marred (for me) by an idiotic portion of the audience who spent the whole night travelling back and forth between the two bars. I reckon the same cockwomble in a U2 t-shirt squeezed past me seven times. FFS.

Actually, these two chaps are probably in 1950's America, judging by the fashions, and the phalanx of demobbed Liberty Ships in the background.

POTUS Election Day 2016

Note for future archaeologists: Today Tuesday 8th November 2016 is the date of the epoch-defining election for the next President Of The United States (Of America).

Donald J Trump vs Hillary Rodham Clinton. 

Oh good grief.

I wanted a vaguely appropriate slide for the day, but due to the lack of information of 99% of slides, I couldn't find anything quickly. So, here's a poor quality slide from 1952, which, at least, has a wall poster of the President Of The United States. At the time, Harry S Truman was the Dude.

Bonus - Vaguely appropriate :

Devil's Lake, Wisconsin, 1956



Sixty years ago.... hmmm.

I wonder whether today's selfies, belfies and food pics will be collected and viewed by strangers in sixty years.

Still. Devil's Lake. There's gotta be a story behind that name.    Devils Lake was so named because it is situated in a deep chasm with no visible inlet or outlet.
