The Redbridge Museum

 

 

This morning I visited the Redbridge Museum and Heritage Centre in Clements Road, Ilford, in the town centre. It’s a small civic museum featuring objects and ephemera from the borough of Redbridge from the Victorian era up to the 1990s. A fascinating snapshot into the history of our area, ideal for local history buffs and schoolchildren studying history projects. There’s no dino skeletons here but there’s a mammoth skull displayed just outside the museum.

Notre Dame de Paris

 

Yesterday evening the famous Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, France, burned down with significant fire damage to the main structure and spire of the landmark. This is a terrible tragedy and loss to Paris, France and the world. Sad thing to happen, but this could be the beginning of a new Notre Dame.

That’s a long way down in Shaanxi

 

 

If you’re an adventurous tourist with a very good head for heights and preferably a small pair of feet, come say ‘ni hao’ to the Chang Kong Cliff Road in China’s Shaanxi Province. It’s thousands of feet up Mt. Huashan and is popular among hikers of a steely disposition.
