    Default Echo cottage..Cambridgeshire


    So after a tip off from a friend who found this place by chance I made the drive over to go see it.its just a small cottage which has been abandoned for some while now.there was lots of musical things in here.amps and a piano and two organs.the reason she called it echo because apparently one of the bits of equipment was used yo get an echo on your music..whilst inside a really heavy storm came on and I had to sit an hour inside waiting as it was so wet and I wanted to see the four old rovers in the garden.i am surprised this aint been trashed as its so near a massive built up area.













































    this was the strangest thing ever an old radio on a cipboard with two cans pn top holding the ceiling up.







































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Superb! The old Rovers are excellent, bring back fond memories from my childhood every time I see one of those old beasts.

    Lovely photos especially the Rovers cars. The Rover with the registration CJO329D according to records was blue on blue colour and was registered in 1966. Was there someone who was a musician in the house? Because of the Farfisa, Selmer, Hammond, WEM and the Carlsboro Amp these are good quality equipment and not your bog-standard will-do equipment. I couldn't make out the make of the turntable.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
