Soon after we married in the early 70s we were living in the flat over our shop in Abbey Churchyard.
We had a public services strike and everybody had to drive the family rubbish up Wellsway, where we chucked the rubbish over the wall on to land that now houses Entry Hill golf course
It must have been difficult for people without cars, imagine taking you rubbish on the bus.
This is me with out little red mini disposing of the family rubbish, didn't need to register with the council computer then, because they only had one and that was writing rent rebate letters and ran on punch tape.

I've been making Mini Worlds since 2006 using an SLR with tripod and spending about 15 minutes with a £700 copy of Photoshop.
I was surprised to find my £250 unlocked Google Nexus 4 phone has the effect built in and does it in seconds here's a sample taken yesterday at Alexandra Park.
Come on Mr Apple the rest are catching up, time to start innovating again!

Just found my first mobile phone from 1987 a Motorola 8800x compared with my Google Nexus 4, looks about the same size till you turn it sideways and find the battery was 2ozs heavier than the whole Nexus.
It had a ten number memory and very short battery life, everything was on contract so when it was updated they let me keep it.

We visited the M shed this week and were very impressed, excellent exhibition, well presented and very entertaining, it would be great if Bath had a similar free museum.
All aspects of Bristol life and industry in one
place from buses to aero engines.
The only paid for part is the chocolate exhibition
that's on till the 6th of May

Twerton storm tanks, a little known corner of Bath, they were next to the pumping station that sends all the Bath sewage to Saltford.
In times of heavy rain the old pipe to Saltford couldn't cope with pumping, so the sewage and drain water was stored in open tanks next to the Chronicle office at Windsor Bridge.
If you had a heavy storm followed by a hot sunny day it was very smelly.
The tanks have now been demolished following improvement in the pipes to Saltford.
