I must admit, it does look a lot like the old coliseum...although it probably isn't. More likely to be another tram shed somewhere seeing as the lines were considerably more extensive in those days. The thought that it might be a tramshed did briefly cross my mind when I first saw the photograph, but then I dismissed it off hand for reasons that I can't actually explain. I suspect the 'Bowling Green' sign threw me.

Shirley...send it on down.

Times have changed a bit, obviously. Nowadays its mostly the smell of horse crap and grockle vomit that blows out of Blackpool.

I wonder what Rusticus's real name was? He seems to have been a big Allen Clarke fan.

Shirley,

I had a suspicion that Rusticus was one of Allen Clarke's psuedonyms. Phil's dated that newspaper article, however, on his 'Windmill Stories' page, to the 1950s...so that particular 'Rusticus' must have been a usurper.

Courtesy of Wikipedia:

Quote:
Fabius Rusticus was a Roman historian who was quoted on several occasions by Tacitus. Tacitus couples his name with that of Livy and describes him as "the most graphic among ancient and modern historians." Tacitus also said that he embellished matters with his eloquence.


A fitting nom de plume then, I reckon.

A fitting name indeed. My grandfather wanted to sail the seven seas so I think Salticus is very apt and Rusticus for the Windmills. see you down at mill.

Phil,

I've no idea where it is, but I'm a bit worried about the size of that pencil case it's towing.
