someone was asking about it. You had to pay a half penny to get
across. On a fine summer's day we used to swim! Picnics "o'er the
watter" in the late 40's early 50's consisted of kippers and tatties

cooked in the oven the night before. We used to spend all day there
from 9am to 9pm. The summers were warmer then!

Should any of you wish to see any other place as it is now - let me
know- could maybe even find a washhouse for Alex!
- Hi All,
You can't send attachments through the groups messages, but you can add photos by logging into the Yahoo groups page and going to the Photo section. It saves having to send out to everyone.
If anyone has problems, you can send me the photo and I will add it to the group album.

Hello Ed et al,
I have some steel-plate engravings by the English engraver W.H Bartlett (1806-1855 apprx). They include a panoramic view of Peterhead viewed from somehere near where the Lido is.
