I worked at Park Royal man and boy from 1961 to 1995. Lots of great memories hide and seek in dark hop stores, swimming in water filled vessels and the reservoirs in the summer on night shift, the girls in office training, the food. A really great job and a good employer.

hopital de Rochefort sur Mer

Enfant j'ai été en colonie de vacances à Port les Barques et dans les tous premiers jours de vacances j'ai été victime d'une crise d'appendicite mal diagnostiquée, j'ai du en suite grâce à l'intervention d'un médecin partir d'urgence en hospitalisation à l'hôpital de Rochefort sur mer, j'y ai été opéré d'une péritonite et en garde un souvenir cuisant pour l'opération mais agréable pour l'hospitalisation. un gamin étant à côté de moi et avait subi la même intervention. j'aimerai le retrouver. ce devait se passer dans les années 1962 ou 63. j'avais 8 ou 9 ans

bonjour, superbe photos félicitation pour ce beau travail!!! petite question quand vous vous été rendu au sommet étiez vous muni de masque et de bombonne car je pratique l'exploration urbaine et je désire y allez également par le biet d'une personnes qui s'occupe de la sécurité du site et celui ci ma dis qu'il fallait se munir de bombonne car il y a encore des émanations très toxique même mortel d’après lui.

In reply to Rick - I'm the creator, photographer and owner of this website.
Seth showed me around when I had the chance to go to Gary. All the photos I did and posted on this page were with him.
He passed away shortly after we met. When I published this page, I thought it was a good idea to remember him...

Canfranc on the "Camino" way of St James to Santiago

We walked here in Oct 2014 from Orloron via the Somport Pass on our way to Pamplona following the Ancient pilgrim way to Santiago .
you can visit the station on a guided tour for a few euros , the town itself and surrounding mountain paths are well worth a visit .Many good value restuarants and a super new hostal open to non pilgrims for only 10 euros per night.
In november on our way back by train and bus we had a longer look at this amazing building then got the bus back to Orloron .

On the way up from Orloron we came across workers clearing the mass of vegetation on the line in preparation for its reopening to Bedous, it will never again go all the way to Somport but al least some of this slendid infrastrure will be put to some use .
It is heartbreaking as you walk up the valley to think of the now wasted labour that went into the tunnels and viaducts. I would call all of it works of great industrial art .
I agree with another comments here that say "please turn it into a cycle and walking path".It would be nothing less than wonderful and as more and more "Pilgrims" walk the way or Camino to Santiago I believe it could have a great future . The way of St james is a linear world heritage site , the original path eaten up by the road the disused railway is PERFECT and would become a major touristic infrastructure benefiting the valleys on both sides . Heres is hoping !!

Caestert heeft wel degelijk een Romeinse oorsprong. Alleem vrijmetselaars ontkennen dit.
