Prince Olav slipway, Scalloway, Shetland.


From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shetland_bus

Doh-I completely missed the "bus  " bit . I have the book by David Howarth R.N.V.R.

Though I spent six months in Shetland, I never visited Scalloway.
I had heard of the Shetland Bus so Googled. Don't know if that's 'cheating'!

If Google isn't cheating then your pic is of Liberace's Bradley GT which is housed in the former residence of Michael Jackson. The outfit clicked before I could read the name on the car, so I had the Jackson connection.

As I have difficulty with the "I got that, so it's me next" flow of the thread (mainly where it breaks down and there are 6 months between postings)

Here's another. Sorry.

Indeed. I shamelessly snaffled partner's pic of the Liberace Garage, Las Vegas.

I'm going to guess that it is the Odeon Leicester square, and that you took the photo during your work for MIND at their annual awards.

Probably Abu Dhabi or similar exotic 'unlikely' location. There are Sjømannskirken all over the place.

More like Swansea

Well done.

Now a jewellery place, hence the lack of the corporate Sjømannskirken logo/typeface.

Da iawn pawb !

It is Swansea; I was there on Wednesday visiting a very swanky dental practice on the dock.
'SA1' would appear to be the cool-and-groovy address for Jacks -or more likely retirees/yachties.

But I think it has stood in the same place as when I cycled past as a medical student in 1980's ?
(Wikipedia confirms, moved in 1910 from Newport - probably made of Norgwegian timber !)

Norwegian church Cardiff is far more glam as it is where Roald Dahl was christened .

I think there are plans afoot to redevelop that area.  :(

Dave Lewis ran some Audax events from there. I think I rode the GLAMorgan Glory on my Pedersen.

It's pretty much complete, Helly. SA1 is now the swanky part on the Uni.

The Swansea - Cork ferry used to sail from 1/2 mile away down the dock.
A local yokel, fishing on the quay told me more about the plan for a car ferry service to Ilfracombe - still on hold.

Is it my go? No. But this one is topical – I spotted it yesterday – so I'm posting it today.
