Lake Placid

Lake Placid

On the way back from Niagara, we had decided to see Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory in Vermont. Looking at the map I realised we would have to overnight on the trip back to have time to do the visit.

So, I decided upon Lake Placid, mainly due to the fact the Winter Olympics in 1980 had been held there, and Zoo records had released a compilation record called 'From the Shores of Lake Placid'. Other than it must be mountainous, we knew nothing of the area; I booked a Best Western (I think) hotel online before setting out to Niagara, and we left.

Lake Placid is in the Adirondacks, and is a wonderful area of upstate New York. After turning off the NY crossway, we headed into the foothills and into the National park. Trees, hills and lakes is what I remember, and calling in at a trading station to buy some iced tea as we were running very late.

This is the view from our hotel the next morning, a huge picture window looking onto the lake, and the hotel in the style of a huge hunting lodge. Our room also overlooked the lake, and we spent the evening on the balcony sipping white wine.

Jools and I hope to head here next fall to see the foliage and to attend Open House NY; we shall see how that pans out, but all have to have something to look forward to.

I know this is not the best picture, but I thought worth posting.

Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is a Canadian city on the Niagara River in the Golden Horseshoe region of Southern Ontario. The municipality was incorporated on June 12, 1903. Across the Niagara River is Niagara Falls, New York.

The city is dominated by the Niagara Falls, a world famous set of two large waterfalls on the Niagara River and benefits from the fact that both falls, the American and Horseshoe, can be best seen from the Canadian side of the river, thus presenting the city one of the major tourist attractions of the world. The natural spectacle brings in millions of tourists yearly. The city permitted the development of a tourist area along the falls and the gorge. This area which stretches along the Niagara Parkway and tourist promenade is particularly concentrated at the brink of the falls and, apart from the natural attractions along the river, includes huge parking lots, souvenir shops, observation towers, high-rise hotels, casinos and theatres, mostly with colourful neon billboards and advertisements. Further to the north or south there are golf courses alongside historic sites from the War of 1812.

The city had a population of 82,184 in the Canada 2006 Census.[1]

Széchenyi Chain Bridge Budapest

Széchenyi Chain Bridge Budapest

Try to look in full size! :)
The first connection between Pest and Buda was made by the Chain Bridge or Szechenyi lanchid, named after count Szechenyi, who took the initiative to build the bridge. In 1836 he gave the project to William Tierney Clark and Adam Clark.
William Clark had already designed two suspension bridges over the Thames, the Hammersmith Bridge in London and the Marlow Bridge. The latter is a similar albeit smaller version of the bridge William Clark would design for Budapest. The construction of the Chain Bridge was supervised by the Scottish engineer Adam Clark (not related).
The 375 meter long and 16 meter wide bridge, a superb engineering feat, was opened on november 20, 1849. In 1857 Adam Clark dug a 350 meter long tunnel through the Castle Hill to connect the bridge with the Buda hinterland.
The bridge ignited the economic revival that would lead to Budapest's golden century and it was one of the factors that made the provincial towns of Pest and Buda into a fast-growing metropolitan. In 1989 people demonstrated on the chain bridge for freedom and independence. Since then, the bridge has become a symbol of Hungarian liberty.

Who Would Ride the Bike?

Childhood was not all about playing and going to school. Children ~ often expected to contribute to the family income, or, in the case of girls, to the running of the home. Jack Britton relates some of the part-time jobs he did while still at school:

You got a job for the local paper, you know, for George Willis selling papers; or the local tradesmen, you'd help the milkman on a Saturday. or the baker, things like that. There was three I can recollect that employed various boys as their ages went on: Alfy Jeffries, the butcher, you knew you'd always get a job there, delivering the meat.

Then there was George Willis, delivering the evening papers. There was Graham Sampson, ironmonger, he would push sand and cement onto a handcart, you got a hundredweight of sand and cement And he also had the shop and you could go there every day, except Sunday of course, first thing on a morning and display all his wares outside on trestles, cups and saucers, paints, bowls, pans, ashbins. It would take quite a while to arrange it all outside, and then last thing at night you would take it in.

On a Saturday you would probably help him on his round. And there was also Mr Knee, who had a big grocery shop in Hanham, and I helped deliver groceries on a carrier bike. They would also take on another assistant, a young girl from school and also another school leaver, a boy.

I remember one occasion helping a fellow name of Bert Sugg he would be about fifteen or sixteen, but employed full-time, and I would go along with him, and I would ride his bicycle, and he would ride the carrier bike. And then we would quarrel. I was a few years younger than him, but we would quarrel as to who would ride the carrier bike, 'cause it was much harder to ride, you see. We were down 'round Sally-on-the-Barn, near the duck pond.

It was winter and it was frozen over, and we had a little bet on if you could ride the bike across the duck pond, you see. And of course he fell for it and rode the bike across the pond and it gave way and in went the bike, Bert, and all the groceries and everything. That needed some explaining away when we got back to the shop.

The Life of a Schoolteacher - Samuel White's School

Mr Malpass, ex-teacher of Samuel White's school, relates how he came to Hanham, and describes the typical school timetable: After being trained as a teacher at St Paul's College, Cheltenham, I commenced my duties in this capacity at the All Standard Department of Samuel White's School, Hanham, on the 1st of October, 1927. This school provided accommodation for mixed pupils from the age of seven to fourteen years.

There were seven classes, labelled standards 1 to 7. The number of pupils reached as many as fifty in some of the classes. The children were placed in the forms according to their ability, ranging from 7 to 11 years in all classes.

The school day started at 9.00am with registration in each class, following the assembly of all the pupils in the hall, where the Headmaster conducted a religious service consisting of prayers and the singing of hymns.

The children then returned to their respective classrooms for a lesson of thirty minutes, based on the study of the Holy Bible. Every class then spent some forty-five minutes on arithmetic.

At 10.45am the whole school took a break for a quarter of an hour. The period from 11.00am to 12 noon was chiefly given over to academic studies, comprising the teaching of English (reading and essay), History, Geography and Nature Study, interspersed with Physical Education in the playground, weather permitting.

The dinner time from 12 noon to 1.30pm followed. Most children travelled home to have lunch, but a few, particularly from distant parts, brought sandwiches. The only drinks available were from the cold water taps in the two cloakrooms.

The afternoon session, lasting from 1.30pm to 4 o'clock, commenced with registration, and was given aver to cultural subjects and crafts. This part of the curriculum embraced Music, Needlework, Science, Handwork and, in part, Physical Education again.

Caning, which I regret to say was given chiefly for a low standard of work rather than misbehaviour, was administered by the headmaster. The conduct of the pupils was generally very good, and it was comparatively easy for the caring teacher, there were some exceptions to this label to establish a friendly relationship with the children.

I made myself responsible for the promotion of sporting activities for both boys and girls. These comprised football for the boys and athletics for the girls. We competed on a friendly basis against other local schools on Saturday mornings and some evenings. An attendance officer, now known as a Welfare officer, and then called a 'Board-man' by the parents,

Horning Swan in the early 1900s

I do not know who the people are on this photo but the sign says Horning Town Sailing Club so it was taken before 1938, well before by the look of the clothes the people are wearing.

I notice that the Swan had not been given its half timbered look yet. It is possible that one of urchins watching from the bank could have been my father. Also I wonder if the boat is Crystal.

Many years later I was part of the crew in a disastrous attempt at the Three Rivers Race in Crystal. The mast broke somewhere near the mouth of the Ant and we watched the remainder of the race from there. Five of us spent a rather uncomfortable night aboard waiting for rescue.

Hotel Champlain Old Quebec

    hotel champlain
  • Hotel Champlain is a historic hotel located in Plattsburgh, New York. It served as William McKinley's "Summer White House".

    old quebec
  • Old Quebec (Vieux-Quebec) is a neighbourhood of Quebec City, the capital of the province of Quebec in Canada. Generally speaking 'Old Quebec' refers to the part of the city within the walls. Other parts of the city have structures as old but the term generally refers to "within the walls".

The Old City with the Hotel Frontenac on top.

Quebec City is one of the oldest European settlements in North America. While many of the major cities in Mexico date from the sixteenth century, among cities in Canada and the U.S.A. only St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador; Port Royal, Nova Scotia; St. Augustine, Florida; Santa Fe, New Mexico; Jamestown, Virginia; and Tadoussac, Quebec were created earlier than Quebec City. However, Quebec City is the first to have been founded with the goal of permanent settlement, and not as a commercial outpost, and therefore is considered to be the first European-built city in non-Spanish North America.

French explorer Jacques Cartier built a fort at the site in 1535, where he stayed for the winter before going back to France in spring 1536. He came back in 1541 with the goal of building a permanent settlement. This first settlement was abandoned less than one year after its foundation, in the summer 1542, due in large part to the hostility of the natives combined with the harsh living conditions during winter.
Quebec Settlement, 1608

Quebec was founded by Samuel de Champlain, a French explorer and diplomat on July 3, 1608, and at the site of a long abandoned St. Lawrence Iroquoian settlement called Stadacona. Champlain, also called "The Father of New France",served as its administrator for the rest of his life.

Standing high on a bluff overlooking the mighty St. Lawrence River, Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac is not merely a hotel located in the heart of Old Quebec - it is the heart of it. At Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac, guests are guaranteed a memorable and inspiring stay in one of the most beautiful cities in the world with easy walking access to all of the wonderful sites and experiences that Old Quebec has to offer. Its only $300 per night Canadian Funds .

Rue du Petit-Champlain

Rue du Petit-Champlain

The Lower Town (Basse-Ville) part of Old Quebec (Vieux-Quebec) encompasses both the oldest residential area of the city -- now flush with boutique hotels, high-end restaurants, and touristy shops and cafes

Allegedly the oldest street in North America, in the warm months, this pedestrian-only lane swarms with restaurant-goers, cafe sitters, strolling couples, and gaggles of schoolchildren. In the winter, it's a snowy wonderland with ice statues and twinkling white lights.

Quebec was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985, the only city in North America with that distinction.
