Re: Pic of the Day

I went through the book again this morning and there is one almost full screen picture of the sign where it does look a tiny bit yellowish, but the whole sponson looks yellowish from pollen and all the other stuff that swims on the water surface.

Re: Pic of the Day

I just checked pictures in Leo's book and I agree, the original colour looks like 'normal' white in those pictures - not yellowish at all like old english white.

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

No issues raised by our museum partner so that's good. Partners in what sense? Do they describe themselves as such?
