Thought these may interest those who have been looking at the Photo Quiz Pix.

The old power station at Whitebirk as in the background of Quiz - 009.

The Astronaut is on the left of the Bookies. Anyone remember the "Circular Loos" ?

I'd forgotten just how big and imposing those cooling towers were.

Ah yes the circular loos, seemed very modern in their day didn't they?
