Thanks Bill for posting the photos of Hadfields and the old Pavilion.  Two of my sisters worked for Hadfields in the late 1950's and early 60's.  I remember going to see the movie 'The Song of Bernadette' at the Pavilion.  For some reason the whole of St. Ann's school went, can't remember why.  I really didn't like the movie, as a child, I found it a bit scary.

Come on, think about it, Jules. Let us know when you hear the "ping" sound.

'Ping', the penny's just dropped, thanks to Google.  The year was 1958 and it was 100 years since the first apparition in Lourdes.  Were you at the pictures, too, Too Shy?  It was the year of Confirmation at St. Ann's and many of the girls chose Bernadette as their Confirmation name.  I found reading about her quite fascinating and she was quite a good looking young girl.  I did not know that her body is on show in a glass case until yesterday.  Her face and hands have a wax covering and she looks so peaceful, just like she could wake up any moment.  I would never have seen this without the 'Wonderful Web'.

Yes it is Meg.

It seems like they've been at it for years but, as you say, it's now looking something like.  I checked the pictures when I got home last night and thought I'd photographed the place on fire but it seems it was reflection of the sun on the windows (a rare event - that's why it's so leafy).

The other picture is of the Broadoak.  As I haven't won the lottery, I didn't go in ;).

Last 3 weeks we have been entertaining our UK neibours circa 1967-77,us, Canada, them, S Africa now Austrialia.
It seems most daily consumed things in Oz are twice as much as here in Ca.(except BEER and WINE) As for Seth Africa,I'm not even thinking of going there(commentwise)
What gives??
