A very astute person once said; "It is impossible to re-create the past. People, places and attitudes are so different now. It is best, just to bask in the pleasures of our own nostalgic memories of what once was".

When wearing my rose tinted hindsight specs, today's world gets a bit fuzzy round the edges (especially if helped with a glass of something sensible).



Seems just about right to me.

"It is impossible to re-create the past".


You could make a bloody good stab at it by;


Put a case of Tennants in the hot press,
Draw the curtains in your bedroom,
Put the heating up to max,
Strip down to your skiddies,
Wrap a towel around your midriff,
Play a cassette of Demis Rousis or Nana on your Akai which was bought in Change Alley,
Invite a few friends in,
Talk about Bill Shankley, Alex Young and Billy Bremner,
Drink warm Tennants,
Let the beer bubbles come down your nose,
Turn -in at 23.45 because you are on Watch at midnight.

What about EBAY. Most of what you need is available to reassemble without the need to recreate. A bit strange to have a Citizen slave running from a Seko master that won't go backwards and so far only one end of a telegraph (with no standby or FWE marked). I did idly look for a Hokushin data logger and am still looking for a Marconi Seaguard. My black museum could probably provide most of a thyripart excitation system.

I am sure between us we could probably do most of the outfit leaving the only problem a hull and perhaps the main engine (sorry could only help there with MIG can't do the real thing).

apologies, I thought I had added the details to the photograph. Harland and Wolff shipyard, stopped on the Queens Road on the way to the Musgrave Shipyard. Photo dated March 1962 probably a bottom section for Regent Liverpool

Neither can I.
We are obviously either missing something or perhaps just 'on the outer'!

When Texaco and Regent combined the Regent Liverpool changed name to the Texaco Bristol ( I think). Never knew it was built in Belfast. And why should I, in 1962 I had only one qualification, 11 Plus (Failed). Condemned to a secondary school and a life of toil and misery, sweat of my brow etc. I regard Charles deGaul as being responsible.

This is getting a bit like an Agatha Christie novel. We're all gathered around seeking the hidden picture.... but . who shall reveal it ?
