This one reminds me of that old black and white weepy film, Brief Encounter.
Best wishes for the next few days. F

I did consider calling this Brief encounter, but under the circumstances I decided maybe that wasn't appropriate!
Cheers everyone, see you next week.

Definitely vintage film. Wonderful atmosphere, mystery and impersonality from the cropped figures and a natural vignette from the steam. The writing is very important too. A visual representation that invokes the sounds and smells of the steam age so well.

Moira, you left us with a GREAT shot -- wonderful mono. How did you part the steam just enough to make the "No 6 Area B Group" visible?

Congrats on the whole "gaining a son-in-law" thing. I am truly happy for you and Bill and the entire family.
