Thought I'd better move Bangor subject matter across here :P  You know I think I found the duck pond I visited but it sure seems smaller now than it was, but then I was awful small as well.  Bangor then was very much country and I can only recall there being a few streets :-\
Is this the Park you were thinking of ???

No wukkers mate, if you don't have it you should get it, absolutely amazing what you can look at.  I'll have to tell you another time on a PM what I have been researching.  Right now though I'm headed for the rack, nice chatting. G'nite from him
