Interesting photo - as a lad I lived down the tip and played many happy hours up the " resser" as we called it. That would be in the 1950's but I have no recollection of the fence in the foreground - In fact I cant remember ever seeing a fence with wooden cross members anywhere. Looking at the pond itself I would think the photo was taken before it was filled in and levelled to about 6 feet depth. It used to be about 30 - 40 feet deep in the middle.
Hi DW. yes i must agree with you on that one. But we did enjoy our swim in the resser on a summers day,and that was probably just as risky because it was a lot deeper then. but there again, hindsight is a wonderful thing, and we did have some great times up there. Do you remember what we called the housetree? well some idiots lit a fire in a hollow in its trunk, and it blew down in the gales about three years ago, i even found our initials still carved in one of the branches. By the way, i dont remember a wooden fence being there either. Take care DW. Regards Butch
Butch you must remember us trying to set a record on the swing on the House Tree, being the smallest I was first on, not sure how many were on before rope broke (7 or 8). By the way thanks for coming to the hospital with me to have the stitches in my head. THE GOOD OLD DAYS.
