A couple of days ago I received some nice parcels in the post – a friend of ours, Rebekah, had sent us some lovely old strip maps of the River Ouse and tributaries. I’m struggling to date them, because they are post decimalisation (75p) and show the “New” Elizabeth Way Road bridge, which was built in 1971, but still show the chain ferry at the Plough in Fen Ditton, which sank in 1961. So rough guess is a slightly inaccurate map from the early 70s.
The other package was our National Historic Ships annual report and calendar – very nicely produced and a good way of presenting their annual report. As a bonus, the October photo is Sarah‘s great shot of Walton‘s (re)launch.
Nothing beats good old snail mail sometimes!
