the sundial on Wilton Bridge. I have no idea whether this photograph
was taken during the original installation or during later renovation
work, though I would imagine that it was the former. Below is
a recent photograph, which I took myself, coincidentally exactly
a year ago to the day, on 17th January 2004. It seems to me

the period between the two photographs. It is therefore probably
not a good idea to rely on the timepiece as an accurate chronometer.
information I have about the football team below, right is from
some handwriting on the back of the original; 'Presenting the
Nicholls Cup to H. Toomer on 1st November 1923'.
information I have about the aircraft photographs is a name,

guess that the bottom two photographs were taken in the old
brewery building in Station / Henry Street (now Somerfield).
The name, 'Baston' was written on the back of the originals.
