The Organist at the 'World Famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom'
Back in the late 50's 60's, Monday night was "Beat Night" with bands such as Reverend Black and the Rocking Vicars :) The organist back then was Reginald Dixon RIP and he used to do the "warm up" prior to the bands performing. or during their breaks. On a Monday, the ballroom, over the years, attracted first Teddy Boys, and later, Mods and Rockers, and sometimes full scale riots would break out between the different "tribes". Poor old Reggie used to get all sorts of crap thrown at him and he would often have to disappear beneath the floor whilst still playing an instrumental of "Love Me Do" or similar. It's all a bit more genteel nowadays

This was definitely a more sedate affair, Sunday afternoon tea as a surprise 90th birthday treat for my Nan who used to frequent the ballroom back in the day (for ballroom not rock & roll).

Was at a classic car show and this car won't fit in my frame.

I came across this interesting variation of a roundabaout in Bern (Switzerland). Obviously there's not too much traffic around this cozy place "renaturalized" by locals who don't have a garden of their own.

Last night was 'prop' night at the camera club... my props were a couple of miniature Dutch houses (with whiskey inside!)
