I am curiosity for know... why this island“s name?
Post #98 on this thread.
In 1784 a local businessman....'John Mann' died....So they renamed a small island (Previously known as 'Mersey Island')......'Mann Island'.....He was an 'Oil-Stone' Dealer.
You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.
ooops -I'm not being cryptic. I'm referring to post # 119 (other page!) which somehow appeared to be the last post on this thread
@ Gerard. I understand your concern about copyright and being ripped off but your name in the top left hand corner would suffice. People don't steal images by accident. They know what they are doing. All you need to do is prove that the original image is yours which isn't very difficult if the image was digitally encoded. IMO your overuse of your name in the above pictures spoils them. You used to be happy with one or two imprints of your name on each photo. What has changed?
I agree. Chances are if someone steals them it'll be a local publication or newspaper, and someone will spot them. In which case you can invoice them accordingly. Although you're not taking photos as a profession, a cheque for a few hundred quid is some new camera kit, a weekend away or some nice meals out.
As I've said before, I use a small watermark. I've had photos stolen once that I know about and I settled with the offending publication for what I see as a fairly significant amount of money.
On this note, if anybody wants any advice on how to obtain payment for stolen photos, I'd be glad to help. I've helped other people get what they've deserved in the past, and nine times out of ten the same methods work. Naturally I wouldn't expect any payment for helping out - I just don't like seeing people's hard work being exploited by others.
Top pictures there Gerard.
Too late Gerard. I,ve just come back from Mara, Marra, Marrer, CREWE and a man in pyjamas, or was it a woman, just asked me did I want any mucky postcards. I said yes, and he showed me yours
However some journeys were operated from Mann Island as confirmed by the 1972 and 1976 timetables.
Other routes using Mann island and Georges Dock Way were 73,73a,79a, 79e, 16, 1, 76 and all the Crosville H routes.
On our running day last year we were running 4,5 and 73 from Mann Island presumably some little IMP had been messing with the rear numbers.
Hope you are all going to join us on our next Running day on 9th Sept.
Mann Island House looks to be next on the demolition list...it now has scaffolding around it and is being gutted.
The frontage of Voss Motors building looks safe for a bit longer. I thought all of Mann Island was scheduled for demolition, to make way for those modern 'black granite' buildings. They must be saving Voss Motors until last.
Mann Island building, almost demolished.
Thanks, I walked past this last week and it was still there
Re: Voss Motors (Mercedes building)
I noticed 'Demolition in Progress' signs and a wire fence have been erected around the front...probably only a couple of weeks left to get photos.
Whats going to be built there? Is it the Museum?
