“ In 1973 my sister-in-law Pat, at Furtherwick Park School, had to do a school project on the Flood as it was 20 years on.
She obtained pictures from various sources of the flood but to bring it up to date she asked me to take some pictures for her showing the Island “as it is now”.
40 years on these pictures are of more interest than they were at the time.”
“By the way, the pictures of Somnes Avenue were taken before it was open to the public. I was a telephone engineer in those days and one of the pics is taken from the top of a pole. Mt GPO van can be seen in one pic.”
Would you please help me by identifying where these were taken. Please comment below or below the individual pictures in the gallery at the bottom.
