Can you see what I did there?

In June 2014 we visited Eastney Beam Engine House, and I was surprised to find the Gas Engine House Open. I’ve not been in there in thirty years.

I knew I had an old picture of my dad taken in the Gas Engine House taken sometime in the late seventies. I had an idea for Ginger to take my picture in what I thought was a suitable place in the room to make a composite image. My memory failed, and I was way out in my guess of where to stand, but the wonders of Photoshop let me fix that, so here we are some 30-odd years apart in time. If there’s a next time, I’ll have to see if I can stand next to him.
