A recent upgrade in the web-hosting software has resulted in all sorts of amusing anomalies and errors on the Society’s website. While churning through the online versions of our Newsletter issues – changing fonts, checking links and repositioning images – your Editor came across two items from the April 2008 issue, reproduced on page 12. Serendipity can have some surprises up its metaphorical sleeve.

Many thanks to all our contributors this issue; we couldn’t do it without you.

Below: Brian Mateer’s aerial photograph of the Orwell (1980s) moving westwards from St Peter’s Dock at lower left, past Stoke Bridge, Princes Street Bridge, the station and Gippeswyk Park. Note also St Mary-at-Quay and St Peter churches in the centre foreground, the lack of the Novotel by the St Peter roundabout, the Greyfriars block and the football ground stands at the upper right.
