Can you recheck the link? Two barefoot guys plus another, several wooden bird cages??

  Brumas 21:48 25 Jul 2014

Ah spot the deliberate mistake.

This is A GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARD unposted and nothing on the back. I thought these may be miners, the birds in the cages to test for gas, but they look too clean and are unshod and bare-headed!

Yes - the upper deck of a merchant ship -is that a fire hose behind the men. No sign of a car!!

Lookin' straight in the face of people is not good Brumas. please be more respectul.

I'm losing it tonight, I'm ex-merch and I didn't even think of it. Having said that, I was catering not below decks in the black gang!!

Why have caged birds on a ship? Is that round hole, in the background, a porthole?

  Brumas 22:02 25 Jul 2014

rdave13 you'd be surprised at some of the 'pets' I have seen on board some of the ships I have been in!!

  rdave13 22:16 25 Jul 2014

The porthole doesn't look right to me. No bolts surrounding it.

Jock1e - where do you get them from? Very Funny! :o)
