I didn't want to take photos in the dark, but at the moment it isn't long before it is, and at least it is now still possible. Christmas lights in Reigate.

While in Long Beach, California last week, I saw these wooden posts from an old pier. They were just banded together and sitting near a sidewalk about a mile from the beach.

The only time I have been at Stafford Street, Timaru at any time resembling night(this was just after 9pm last Thursday after the latest museum exhibition opening). Of course it was not dark enough and had been raining....The decorations used to be much better.

Very nice card Sara, and to you!

I was taking something else here so took the road as well which is about a mile from here in Kingsbury.

We had a really hard frost and freezing fog the night before last and it left the cobwebs looking more like ropes the frost was so thick on them. This one and a couple attached to the back of a shed were still pretty near perfect and just looked so amazing.

I could have zoomed a bit on this as without the paint the small letters are tough to read. In 1965 the county of Middlesex was abolished and incorporated into the enlarged Greater London, and all the boroughs were also merged and abolished, Wembley and Willesden joining into Brent. So although we had partly London postcodes from way back that wasn't an administrative boundary so Kingsbury was part of Wembley not London. There's a similar sign in Willesden and due to a little bike ride to the shops yesterday the first in Wembley borough has surfaced, and almost certainly pre-war.

You could probably date it more accurately by doing research on the Town Clerk to find out when he was in the position. £5 sounds like a huge fine for that time and 'crime', that would be more than most people earned in a week. I can certainly remember similar signs, but Southampton, during the 1950s.
