Photos taken April in Portadown


Tannaghmore Gardens, Portadown
This is a beautifull piece of parkland, a couple of miles out of town towards Lough Neagh.

Tannaghmore Gardens museum
This little museum features a blacksmith and local tools of years gone by. The small exhibition is very thought provoking.

Council Yard wall mural
This is a valliant attempt to encourage more people to recycle. Northern Ireland has a very small percentage of its waste products recycled, compared to other "developed" nations. The overwhelming attitude to the environment among many people is almost neanderthal. Teaching people to use bins, never mind recycling facilities, is akin to teaching monkeys to recite Shakespeare.

Tree carvings
When I was about 13, my friends and I carved messages into the trees during the school summer holidays. Obviously this was prior to my interest in nature and the environment. Thankfully my efforts dont seem to have caused permanent damage, as twenty years on, the trees in Bachelor's walk are still flourishing. I was surprised to see our initials till so visible in the bark today.

Gilford Road, Killicomaine junction
This peculiar building is situated on the junction. I was always fascinated by the door in mid air. The brickwork contains carvings of initials dated from the pre war era.

Furniture Store
The last of a dying breed. These little shops have all but disappeared from the economic landscape, due to competition from the multi-nationals.

School Building
This is an end view of a little building which had the unusual name of "Finlandia". It was part of my school buildings at Portadown College. Before I went to that school, this outdoor area was part of our unofficial playground. No one was supposed to play in this area, but rules didn't affect us. We reckon that as long as we were not intent on doing harm, we were entitled to do anything and go anywhere which wasnt under lock and key.
