It was a well reported event, apparently it was even made the subject of a postcard rather bizarrely in my view.

Is that a steel frame that has melted?
There must have been a lot of them about so perhaps it was a big deal at the time

There was a fire in an office block in Madrid a few years ago, that burnt for ages and the steel didn't give way, it was looked at in comparison with the WTC towers.

If anyone has the odd special photo that is in need of restoring you can send it to me. Restoring pictures is a hobby of mine and I will be glad to help if I can. SB

Good morning John I use several bits of software depending on the state of th picture. For most faults I find the Fx Foto with it's Cloning tools etc can fix most things.

And on a happier note this camera has just been sold for £600,000 after being discovered in an attic after a number of years.

John

I too sometimes despair of where this sudden aversion to public photography is taking us. Yes I understand that we have to be careful today where we allow photographs to be taken.

But it now seems that Councils and governments seem to think that they own all the local scenic views and want to charge you or make you pay for a licence to do something we have been doing free for years.

Did you like the old box camera? I knocked it up out of an old orange box and some old brass fittings I had knocking round the garage. Some mugs will pay anything if you tell them the right story.

I've never been stopped and I've done a lot of photography all over especially London and New York.
The nearest I ever came to getting in trouble was photographing Marilyn Monroes house, a dog started barking (this was at 5.30 on a
summer morning), and I thought I'd better hightail it, when I was driving away around the corner came a black 4x4 with 2 nasty looking guys in with rifles.
I forgot to say, on every front lawn around was a little blue shield which said EXCELSIOR SECURITY-USE OF DEADLY FORCE AUTHORISED.

If you ever need a manual for a camera you can get a pocket sized book for nearly every camera ever made here, I've used them several times very reasonable about £7 on average.http://www.testreports.co.uk/photography/ap/
