This Week: [HRH Duke of Kent - Gangshow] [Topical Photography - Nature Watch] [Readers' Pics - Archive Ross - Letters]

Readers' Photographs

The photograph of the beautiful sunset below was taken and sent in by reader, David Cooke of Ross-on-Wye. Thank you for that, David and I look forward to the promised archive pics.

If you have a photograph taken locally which you would like to see published here, please email. Jpeg (.jpg) preferred but not essential. Please send a file larger than 700 pixels wide if landscape or 350 pixels wide if portrait so that I can reduce in size to maintain quality of reproduction.


Archive Ross-on-Wye


Quite a wide variety of subjects are covered in this week's archive. The top two photographs are scans from the Ross Gazette archive and the bottom picture is a very poor quality photograph, taken from the garden of my house, in Cawdor.

I do not know anything about the crashed glider in the photograph below but I would assume that the accident happened somewhere locally. I would be interested in information, if anybody remembers the event.

Photo number two is of Ross Football club, circa 1977. I recognize most of the team members but can only remember a few of their names.

The bottom picture was a snapshot, extracted from an old Kodak Instamatic 127 negative of 1976 vintage. I have included this because it shows buildings which no longer exist. The house, in Nursery Close was demolished in the 1980s, as was S.H.A.C.S. The demolition of S.H.A.C.S LIMITED, flour mill in Greytree Road made way for Fontein Court - warden assisted accommodation.


Readers' Letters


Response to 'Assinder' Enquiry.

Alan, I would like to place the following message on your " can anyone help ? " page, please. In reply to David Assinder : I have a William Assinder b. around 1850 who married Eliza Keyse b.1854 in Llanwarne, Herefordshire (not too far from Ross on Wye). They had 4 daughters, Emily, Amy, Effie, Florence. I am descended from the Keyse family of Llanwarne. Could your Assinder possibly be the father or uncle of my William ? Happy to share any information. Colin Smith - Cannock, Staffordshire

Thank you for that, Colin. I have passed on your email to David. Ed.


Comedian in Goth Chart Success!

Musical Comic, Paul B. Edwards must have broken some sort of record in his latest escapade - the popular stand up recently found his self-funded CD, optimistically entitled "Paul B.'s last CD", uploaded onto a huge Gothic music website and it wasn't long before the black-clad in cyber-space began taking an interest. This peaked with their recently-published download figures for January, in which our intrepid comedy explorer took up no less than seven - yes seven! - places in their top ten! Nestled in amongst the number 2 spot (Every night is Hallowe'en by the Beautiful Deadly Children) and the number 10 spot (Midnight Configuration's "Metaphysical") the bequiffed songster holds on to places 3 to 9 inclusive with tracks including "Randy The Cowpoke", "Skegness" and "I LOVE ROSS ON WYE" Asked to comment on his phenomenal alternative chart success, Mr. Edwards responded in typical fashion saying "This is nothing less than I deserve and my biggest achievement since losing forty eight quid on "Bargain Hunt". This would seem to prove that not only is Paul B.'s music eminently downloadable, but also that Goths know how to smile after all.

Paul B. Edwards
