Secrets of the Thames
The Battersea Sheild (number three) what a piece of work!
Huge piece of Coral from the Thames today. Brought back from the Caribbean as ballast.
Got anything for scale?
Having seen those type of coral pieces in Queensland, I would guess it's not as large as the photo appears.
I expect they used lots of those pieces.
I say a 'huge piece' because I've only ever picked up fragments. The 50 franc was from the same spot.
My uncle jumped in the Thames (claims he was drunk and showing off to impress mate), just up stream from Tower bridge, around1985 the river police pulled him out amd told he was first live one they had had for awhile. Since then he has had a few more atempts.
Found a wooden boat on the Thames this morning!
I so wanna dig that out.
Awesome, you tweeted MOLA?
Was going to show Kate at my next Museum of London appointment.
