What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Five years ago it was the seaside town of Bridlington in Yorkshire.

It’s a town I never get bored with visiting and I’m hoping to visit again in June for Race the Waves ’22

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Ten years ago it was the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway in Derbyshire.

The 1 in 27 Ravenstor Incline heads north out of Wirksworth station and didn’t originally carry passengers (leading as it did, to Middlepeak Quarry) but on special event days the line is in operation and is well worth a visit.

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Seven years ago it was Peak Rail in Derbyshire.

LORD PHIL (built by the Hunslet Engine Co Ltd for the War Department in 1943) was in charge of passenger services and had no problems handling a five coach train.

This Midland Railway wagon was looking every bit its almost hundred years age though… ‘For Internal Use Only’ refers to a vehicle not allowed out onto the main line but still used in an industrial location.

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Five years ago it was the daylight fading and reflecting the last of its colour in the River Loire.

Throwback Thursday… Fat Stan (again!)

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Fifteen years ago it was local rock band Fat Stan, playing a pre-Christmas gig at a local pub (the Dog & Doublet in Pye Bridge if memory serves me…)

Sadly neither band nor pub are still going but more pics of the former can be found here.

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Five years ago it was the business premises of H.O. Bowley Ltd, Hosiery & fabrics in Loughborough during a stroll to the (sadly now closed) Tap & Mallet pub on Nottingham Road.

I really should do more of this kind of photography… even if wandering the streets at night can get you a reputation! 😁
