Durham Balloon Show

I watched as many balloons took to the skies over Durham City, I watched as many colours reached for the heavens as I staired in aww at there beauty. Balloons from many countries were competing that day all shapes and sizes. Balloons are filled with hot air and with it a woven basket hangs down from the bottom of the balloon so people can climb in and manager it better whilst it is in flight. It had been many years since the wright brother took off to the sky's on there first voyage in the kitty hawk. since then man has enjoyed many a flight crossing continents in his quest to make the planet ever smaller and within his reach. The Avro Anson, was originally designed as a coastal reconnaissance aircraft, and was derived from a 6-seat passenger airliner, the Anson 652. The design team was lead by Roy Chadwick, the designer of the Lancaster. The Anson ended up serving the RAF for over 30 years.

Waiting for my Train

Took this photo of some old suitcases perhaps 1930s or 1940s baggage as it sat just outside the Pullman train waiting to go to its destiny. the picture i liked because it so reminded me of an era that's has passed by of steam locomotion and the hustle and bustle of the platforms as the train began to move slowly out from the station under the whistle of the train station master.

It Had been a long time since the wright brothers fist flew the kitty hawk that sunny day a long time since man took to the sky's in flight. Man had flown across the Atlantic and across continents to achieve at that time the unthinkable. the world became smaller as flights became ever more increasingly. Thank you to the Avro Anson, was originally designed as a coastal reconnaissance aircraft, and was derived from a 6-seat passenger airliner, the Anson 652.

On The Busses

I always remember as a child, the bus conductors and the bus drivers. The bus conductor always had a ticket machine which he would crank round after receiving your fair. This is a 1950s bus ticketing machine used on the bus service within the Durham and Sunderland Districts for local transport.
