Eastbourne (day 8)

It’s Saturday, the penultimate full day of our holiday. An incredibly warm and sunny morning brought out the locals and day visitors for a stroll on the promenade. We sat on benches – people watching – old people (like us), parents with little ones on scooters, dog walkers (lots of them!). In the afternoon we read The Times and took in the end of the Trump reign, and early evening we picked up two enormous cod & chips from the nearby fish & chip shop. No need to take pictures today, so here are a few left-overs from the week.


Glass plate prints at the library

It’s not often I visit the main library but I’m glad I did as I came across a lovely, small exhibition of glass plate portrait prints. There’s a web site about the larger collection and a full set of images can be found on a Flickr site. It’s a fascinating collection that was discovered in the basement of a shop seventy years after the plates were abandoned by the photographer David Knights-Whittome.
