Hi Old Git

Picture of Blakeney to start the ball rolling. Post mark says August 1949.

Plenty of pubs in the High Street. Expect many of you can remember a pint of Bullards!

A couple more - Harbour and Hotel

Image

Zooming in on the cars, the first one looks 1950s, and the second one much earlier - 1910/1920?

That last picture is interesting, so the artificial banks are keyed into the surface beneath?

And the wooden trapezium must be to mark out the level top of the dyke.

Would this work have been done by local men? Or hired navvies?

One of the men looks to be wearing a scots bonnet Al, but I suppose they would
have been a mixture of labour, locals, fishermen and the like. yes you can still see
such level and gradiant boards being used these days on river banks and ditches,
but modern self leverling lasers are a lot easier to use. In the next pic you can
see two men using boning rods to get thier levels, i've used those at times.
There must be 28/30 men laying these pipes, today it would be one man with
a mini digger and a level.
