Presentation Transcript

Greenwich Salisbury Stonehenge London:

Long Weekend of Nov. 6 – 9, 2003 Greenwich Salisbury Stonehenge London Photo album retrofitted from old pre-digital and some disposable cameras.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Cutty Sark . Looking down on the National Maritime Museum from the walkway to the Royal Observatory. Greenwich

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Prime Meridian. With One Foot on either side of the marked line, you are standing in two hemispheres simultaneously. Apparently, we didn’t think enough of it to take my now-obligatory “Look at me at an iconic site” pic . As a consolation, however, the Prime Meridian IS completely arbitrary, unlike the equator (See 2012).  The Royal Observatory, established in 1675, now is an interesting museum.

PowerPoint Presentation:

With the largest pub-to-citizen ratio in England, Just by the train station is a great little pub which served Bubble and Squeak (ham and eggs), Toad in the Hole, Pork Valentine, spotted dick, Turkey Dinosaurs, and, of course, Bangers and Mash, with Jackets as well. Nice medieval arch on the way to the cathedral. Salisbury

PowerPoint Presentation:

Salisbury Cathedral – completed in 1258, this is one of the finest in Britain. Inside is the world’s oldest working clock, circa 1386

PowerPoint Presentation:

Interior courtyard, above; and the Trinity Chapel to the right. The first altar was consecrated here in 1225

PowerPoint Presentation:

OK, so, if I’d have been here in the spring, here’s the pic I would have instead of the overcast ones I took……

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Wilts and Dorset Bus # 3 from Salisbury to STONEHENGE

PowerPoint Presentation:

2500 – 1500 B.C. A closer view

PowerPoint Presentation:

LONDON (remember when you wouldn’t know how your picture turned out until you got home and got it developed?) Prospect of Whitby . Opened 1520, and known as the Devil’s Tavern due to it’s low-life criminal clientele. Charles Dickens hung our here, and Captain Kidd was executed nearby. Platform 9 ¾ signage. Ring a bell.

PowerPoint Presentation:

A busker (musician, palying for tips) in the Tube. I often wondered if any of the more talented buskers went on to fame, and I might have a picture of them in their “salad days” Eros in Piccadilly Circus at night.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Trafalgar Square, pigeons completely removed since my last trip (see 1999 photo album), with some controversy. A DEFINITE improvement.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Joan poses at an alcove with narrow slits from which weapons could be discharged. A Beefeater (yeoman warden) regales the crowd at the entrance to St. Thomas’ Tower
