Recommended Posts

Following on from Herr Prop's poll, let's all post a picture of the town / City we live in?

 

Here are a couple of pics of Newcastle upon Tyne (as you can see...we are BIG on Bridges here!!) :smile:

To be fair, although "the Boro" is a bit of a dump in some places, some of the surrounding areas just minutes away from the town are very nice,

Have a look see.

This is 5 minutes from where I'm sitting - the disused rail line that's now part of 'The Lines', our local nature trail.

...and some from Berlin, were I live since many years.

The Gedaechtniskirche (Memorial Church) is a modern church, built around the ruin of the old one,

that was destroyed in a bombing raid in WW2.

The Reichstag (now our Bundestag - Parliament so to say) was wrapped by artist Christo in the 90is,

before it got the glas dome rebuilt.

 

The aircraft are hanging in the Museum fur Verkehr und Technik (...for Traffik and Technology).

The DC3 is hanging outside, over the main entrance.

What a charming town. :shok:

 

The locals are now nationally referred to by the name of Smogmonsters! :yes:

Middlesbrough (Teesside) used to have a thriving Steelworks, Chemical Industry and Shipyards. Unfortunately, most of these are fastly disappearing or being run down so the unemployment in the area is probably worse than it should be.

The town is undergoing quite a bit of regeneration these days however.

 

(Rabu - Did you look at the other links I posted, the ones with the nicer bits in them! The North East of England is not a bad place to live really)

Ah - Sydney! Nice place!

 

Davy - those other pics of the moores are beautiful.

I have been up there somewhere, near Derby that was.

Great Druid stones at Birchover (? I think was the place).

 

RABU - compliments to your "gardener" - wonderful!

This is the Albert docks, Liverpool. One of my favorite places in Liverpool. To the right of the picture you have the Liver building. The one with the two towers.
