More Memorabilia.........

This is a continuation of the Stuff on display in "Memorabilia........."

Hostage Release Vigil 1989 (we camped out at Bristol Harbourside and got People to sign a Petition) Meet the De Witt Bucketters.

This was also there.......... a beautiful Sailing Ship.

Not long after this there was the Press Conference mentioned in "Memorabilia". This was the Venue - and someone seems to have quite poignantly shot it in Sepia - which gives it a 1912 Period feel.

William Waldorf Astor's Hotel was built the same year as the Titanic (1908) so many of the Fixtures and Fittings were what might have been fashionable at the time. It's 1990 and a sense of exuberance and optimism prevails.............

You don't suppose People might have met here..............

You'd think these 2 were in a Film or something...........

The years including and after 1996-7, in other words how everything looks now!!!!

Vigil/Press Conference Photos/Drawings by yours truely!

Something that speaks volumes here about Generosity as opposed to Mean Spiritedness was how the Waldorf gave us free use of their Conference Facilities.

What happened after that is a question for any 'Stewards' (rather unflatteringly described in one Titanic Documentary), who might have blocked everything up - but it certainly felt like being Jack - where this is the one Day with the Posh People - and that was it.


  1. Meanwhile, here's an Historical Diagram for everyone from former Archbishop Envoys to anyone in the Yippieocracy who tries lumping us in with any Islamic Extremists......

    I decided to post this in all these Threads for those who haven't read it.


  2. Today proved to be a Jack Dawson Moment.....

    I tried playing Street Music in the same Location as the top Photograph was taken. There were a lot of Hippie Market Stalls there - one of whom complimented me on my Music. he did this as I was walking past - having been moved on by the Manager. While Dawson had his token Evening with the posh People, like I did at John Jacob Astor's Brothers Hotel (the Waldorf - also see above and http://metrowynn.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/titanic-more-than-just-love-story.html and http://metrowynn.blogspot.co.uk/2016/09/memorabilia.html) I also seem to have had my token Day on the Harbourside - 28 years ago. What was weird about it was how just after he moved me on someone else shows up to play the same Spot. I was just left with same feeling Dawson must have had when he was turned away by Spicer-Lovejoy in the Movie. That I've had my token Moment with the Yippies and that's yer lot! What does this say about all that?

  3. This also happened a couple of Months ago with something similar!
