    Lovely shots. Looks a nice peaceful mooch. Quite amazing so much is still standing if it was abandoned in 1882.
    Old enough to know better

    rather like this too :)
    Zero reports, zero participation and then a PM asking for info tends to offend - I delete such PM's so don't waste your time.
