End of an Era

I took this photo in September, I don't know why, only that i've always liked this building. It's part of a large group of buildings that have laid derilict for some years now that were formally owned by the Holman Bros. (Cornish Mining engineering company for those that don't know...*smile*)
To me it epitomises an era when Cornwall was at the forefront of its mining hayday and world renowned for it's technolgy and expertise. Twas once said, "Show me any mine in the world and i'll show you a Cornishman mining there". 

Sadly whilst walking to work yesterday, i saw a demolition company in the compound and the roofs you see here are no more and i know that the rest of the buildings will be following suit. Change will always happen and is to be embracred, but somehow i know that coming home that way will never be the same!

An Apology

Sorry that there have not been any posts for a while, but due to sickness and work i've struggled to get out and about.

Normal service will resume very soon....*chuckles*

Thanks for being patient...*smile*
