British Railways Travel Art Poster Print, St Ives, Cornwall, England, Travel By Train My grandmother used to take us to St Ives for a day out when we were children.I used to love it. St Ives is one of my favourite seaside towns.
We've just had a log burner fitted in the living room but are without a mantlepiece! A small contribution towards a chunky old sleeper from salvoweb or a reclamation yard would help us get somewhere to put our candlesticks!
British Army officers pose next to projectiles fired by the "Dora" railway gun. Dora and its sibling "Gustav" were 80 cm guns developed in the late 1930s by Krupp as siege artillery for the purpose of destroying the French Maginot Line fortifications. The guns could fire shells weighing seven tonnes to a range of 47 km (29 mi). Gustav was captured by US troops and cut up, whilst Dora was destroyed near the end of the war in 1945 to avoid capture by the Red Army.
