That's just incredible! Thanks for a fascinating look...it would have made a good Where in the World puzzle, or What in the World... I found this animated GIF by Famine on Wikipedia that helped me visualize how it looks in operation. It's put together from a time-laps series.

My darling father-in-law grew up in Falkirk and I've never gone there. But just mention a canal and I want to know about the towpath. A walk through Falkirk may be in my future: http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk...de-union-canal.shtml Thanks, Ian.

Re: The Murals of Winnipeg Pt 1

DrFumblefinger ·
Very informative and interesting post, TravelingCanuck! I lived in Winnipeg for about a dozen years during my teens and early 20s, and go back often to visit my elderly father who still lives there in a retirement home. I've seen some of the street art in the city, but not these very interesting murals. I note on the Valour mural photos there appears to be white stuff falling from the sky. This could, of course, happen almost any time of year in Winnipeg. Anyways, thanks for sharing and hope...

TravelingCanuck ·
You are correct. I was there mid April and there was a light dusting of snow falling. I will be back in the fall or new year again and plan on checking out more murals for a part 2.

Thanks. What is nice is that most murals has some link to the cultural, ethnic or historical aspect of Winnipeg. They show a diverse cross-section of the life of the city over the years.

Not all English kings were so kindly treated, either. Richard III, buried without ceremony or proper marker in an abbey chapel had to wait 530 years for a proper tomb in Leicester Cathedral, after being found under a modern car park. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...chard_III_of_England

Re: HMY Britannia.

PortMoresby ·
I enjoyed this peek into HMY Britannia very much, having only seen it from the outside when it wasn't open. The only jarring note is the unfortunate choice of upholstery fabric with the carpets (or vice versa) in the Queen's lounge. More Labour cost-cutting? Otherwise, what a lovely place to spend one's "holiday". Thanks, Ian!
