1950's postcard of Workington

A look at Workington from the mid-20th Century to the early 21st Century

The Past is Another Country

Into the hazy mist of Time
I peered and searched in vain;
For old but happy memories
Of youth - frolicking in the rain.

Ah! But the Past is another country -
An unfamiliar place;
Where dreams are but gossamer threads
And hope, a wispy trace.

The pictures you will find here are pictures of structures that no longer exist. It is a sad fact that for something to be really appreciated, it would seem that it must no longer be with us..... Enjoy!
