Peter inspired me and a host of others including my then very young son, Dom.
Peter was a great guy, a helper, a do-er, he really loved and lived heritage. Without the support and influence of Peter, it is very probable that Cyberheritage would never have been born.
Here is 1968 photo of Plymouth City Centre taken from Cattedown and Victoria Wharves.
I am putting most of my new stuff, and there is LOADS!!!on Facebook, as is free, and I have run out of web space, check it out here CYBERHERITAGE FACE BOOK PAGE Hundreds of new images..for today, a hi res image of DEVONPORT MOUNT WISE, in its prime, SIGNAL COTTAGE at WESTERN KINGS, STONEHOUSE, PLYMOUTH in 1971, thanks to Rob Legge, PENLEE POINT FOGHORN, ELECTRIC LIGHT, AND OBSERVATION POST, again 1971 and thanks to Rob Legge - both very hi res. Our system have been connecting people right in their calling area for over 3 decades 24/7 There are 100`s of people, men & women on line on every given hour speaking English or Spanish and EAGER to chat with you .Our "City Fathers" (loose term) saying goodbye to HMS Plymouth, public access, sorry; any access at all!! to Drakes Island, allowing the the Palace Theatre to decompose as an excuse to demolish it, the Plymouth Dome on the Hoe being closed down, saying please let me knock you down to the 1960s iconic Civic Centre, yes, that's when we had a proud Plymouth, the Mayflower Steps allowed to be falling down..did the founding Pilgrim Fathers do for Plymouth anyway, ok, they just left and helped found one of the greatest countries ever, the United States...so? not forgetting the Park Pharmacy driven from the city limits, & destroying any other possible heritage on sight, BUT now we have risen to the glorious crowning monstrous carbuncle of Plymuff-ness, "to haste with the contrived closure of Plymouth City Airport"!!! Nothing, just the association of the word "hours" when used with journey times, and filth, litter, messy toilets, & no seats!!WITH LUCK - YOU DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT - ORDER A CUSTOM CONTENT CD! , SO I SHIFT AND SHIFT AGAIN, SO IF ANY LINKS TO IMAGES DO NOT WORK, LET ME KNOW, IT`S NOT EASY RE-UPLOADING THIS LOT!!
