I’m behind on my pier reports – I still have a report on Great Yarmouth the write. After yesterday I also have two others to report on – Cleethorpes and Skegness.
My orderly side says I should do Yarmouth first and the other two in turn. Another side says I should write up the most recent visits while they are still fresh in my mind.
And yet another part of me says I should review another piers book, or even write about something completely different so that I don’t become a pier bore.
The picture at the top is a flattened penny from the machine on the pier. This is what the other side looks like.
The trick with squashing pennies is to use a dirty one so that traces of the design show up and make things a bit more interesting.
For now I’ll leave you with that, as I need to get to work on the other posts. I put up a 1966 medallion for auction today.
The medallion is only 30mm across in real life.
Then, in a new low for quality standards, I put a lot of 100 National Transport tokens up for sale. I have no pride.
