Random Picture Thread

Post by Dean on Thu Sep 23, 2010 2:50 am

Hey, I wasn't sure about this thread and if people don't like it then we can change it but I had some pictures to show you all which are loading onto PB at the moment. They have nothing to do with tv, movies or hotties (so why bother right?). The random thread is getting huge so I thought any miscellaneous pictures we want to add can go in here, doesn't matter what they are.

Good idea or bad?

Well hdere's something you may or may not be interested in.

These images were taken around the area I live in but rather a long time ago. I love looking back in time at people and places, makes you wander what people will think looking back at us in a 100 years time.


This is Uxbridge a nearby town to me in 1913.





Underneath the bell tower of the above picture was a market which only closed about 20 years ago. Here it is in 1914.

This is what is called The Uxbridge Road, basically a massive road which leads from Uxbridge to Shepherds Bush. Looks different than the picture below taken in 1910.





This is The Dawley Road in 1910, this is a few streets down from me.

Here's The Cowley Mill, it was as it says a Mill. It's a pub now, this is the other side of Uxbridge, taken in 1912.





This is the Adam and Eve pub taken in 1908, you saw it in the Uxbridge Road picture. It is still there today although it looks a little different now, not as much as you probably think though.

As long as they're not of me, me too lol.

What was it like a 80-100 years ago where you live? Was there just fields or homes? A lot of the area where I live was fields. Apparently it was farming for a very long time then housing had to be introduced to keep the workers happy.

I'll look to see what I can find tomorrow. I'm pretty sure the house I'm living in now was around though.

So I wasn't sure where to add this so Random hasn't been used for a while.

When I got home hubby asked me why do you like hooker shoes all the time, I had no answer just giggled.

I know but at £85 or $140 I put them back one week before pay day. I don't normal pay that for shoes either.

They are AMAZING shoes! Look fantastic - I would kill myself trying to walk in them. I always envy people that can walk in heels.

Ahh I see - I believe the are called car-to-bar shoes. Ones that you cant walk any distance in, just out the taxi to the bar, and then back to another taxi on the way home Wink
