Re: South Shields Museum Seaside Exhibition

Looks like a nice collection of machines and a rare Myers Road Test also.

Hi,
This is excellent. I have seen another variation with a pelican sitting on the pier.
These pictures are often missing or covered with a piece of glass.
Well done.

Re: Dreamland, Margate

The scenic railway was not allowed to open because of health and safety rules. Each carriage now has to have a wire cage fitted to it so the riders don't fall out.
