Title: Looking for a photo: Park at Yacht Club!
Post by: Michael Alexander on February 02, 2008, 09:57:50 AM
Remember the Park down at the Yacht club? There's nothing left anymore, not even the fence.... just desert, anyhow, Does anyone have a photo of that park?

Thanks!

ps... I'm still looking for a pic of the headgear for the Poofie Slide at the School!

Hennie, do you know how long I have been looking for that photo.....?

The memories.... Wow! I think it must have been in 1976 when I climbed those stairs.....

It was amazing what the mine workshops could produce......

ps...I think the pic is mirrored.......

thanks

Hi Hennie,

Mirrored the image to show the correct direction of the slide..... I have just showed the picture to Rainier Siebers who identified the bloke in the cap as the late Bob Ellis....
