    Great pic. Are those gulls or Afghan hound wigs?

    Ha,ha, very good Ged

    come to think of it, it's rare to see an Afghan Hound now isn't it. They were very fashionable at one time - but you don't see them now.

    Remember Chris Amoo winning Crufts with his Afghan ?

    Afghans were very fashionable in the 1970s.
    Beautiful animals, but they need to run a lot.
    I think they're one of the fastest dogs.
    I knew somebody who had one, but the poor dog died very young.

    This postcard is from my collection.

    It's the Afghans who are being hounded now!

    Quincy. Nice photo, I think it must be one of the lesser spotted SLB's, I've recently photographed over 50 for a calendar and I didn't even see this one. Well done

    funny you say that, as I came into the gardens in the middle I didn't actually see the SLB at first. only when I noticed a few people at the far end with cameras I realised where it was.

    Nice picture GD!

    Every time I see this building I think of the Noah's Ark That Used to be in the Southport fairground. Maybe they intend it for the Zoology museum?

    If development wasn't totally profit orientated this area could be made into a a nice little mini nature reserve and leisure spot.

    I can see a fair likeness to Ged there. Must be a trick of the camera.

    I mean, if we cant keep a brewery going,what can we do! The bank of Scotland knocked Cain's back, but probably because they've just posted the second biggest loss ever!!!!!!!!
