This is just an idea.
There is a lot of good stuff which just seems to get lost in the tidal race of "Miscellaneous". Nice little things about boats,
cruises and people generally messing about on the water. A regatta in NZ. New York waterfront in 1888. Often, by the time I see it it's nearly off the bottom of my page.
So here's my thought. How about we re-name "People and Places Search" to "People and Places". This is a very quiet area of the forum anyhow, and it might be a nice place to moor all the topics like the above, including my own snippets from Cornwall. Then they would kind of hang around for a while, and maybe create their own contemplative little quayside.
I can't claim ownership of this idea - Alan D Hyde
came up with it first in an e-mail to me, I think.
