From Cannon to Post Box

This photograph shows a double post box used by the Royal Mail which stands on Briggate, Leeds close to the John Dyson building I posted about when I first started the Leeds photo daily.

This is a standard double mail box seen in most cities around the UK, the thing that caught my eye was the inscription at the bottom of the photo “Carron Company Stirlingshire”. I am interested in the military of the Napoleonic era, and know that Carron produced cannon for both the British Navy and the British Army during that time. Indeed the Carron company produced a type of cannon called a “Carronade” that was part of the armament of Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory.

This week my internet connection will be connected again at my flat, so my posts on this blog should be a lot simpler. I have taken lots of photographs in and around Leeds over the past few weeks but posting them onto the Leeds daily photo has involded using friends broadband connection.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
