You probably know that Ian isn't very old but I think we all understand what was meant by the original post.

Nice picture Pablo. It still gets pretty rough down there at times, I think but I've not seen it like that. The parade still looks the same. I wonder if the clock is still there? (is it a clock or a Pub sign?)

Must be a Pub. That's Albert Tatlock outside looking to wet his whistle.

He'd best get in quick before more than his whistle gets wet... seeyu

That's odd - my Google has it most definitely in England! Cheshire West and Chester to be precise...

When I click on the link, I get, in the left-hand pane:
Parkgate, Antrim BT39. The pic in the right-hand pane is our Parkgate.
If I click on the address in the left pane, I first get an aerial of our Parkgate, then it changes to a map of Parkgate in Antrim.
