Re: Postcards from your birth place

How have I managed to miss this?!

A scene typical of the town I was born in (Gillingham, Kent)

Re: Postcards from your birth place

I love this view. You see it when you walk from the trainstation to get the bus to my parents! It really encapsulates the very best of the place I grew up.

Re: Postcards from your birth place

PlantHead already posted a good picture of Gravesend showing the Station (& the Railway Bell & the Somerset Arms where I spent too much time as a lad!). Odd we are both in Dubendorf now.
