It's actually Mary Smith, a London lady who earned sixpence a week working as a knocker-upper. She shot dried peas at the windows of houses to wake the occupants up.

You did, but your picture was in a format that the software on here didn't recognise as being a picture, so it couldn't display the image, and instead it displayed the placeholder icon for the picture.

Quiz question,... what is the connection between those structures in that area, and Michael Caine. ?

"Aid From The Padre"




June 1962 Venezuelan Navy chaplain Father Luis Manuel Padilla gives the last rites to a soldier wounded by sniper fire during an anti government revolt in the Venezuelan coastal city of Puerto Cabello.

The soldier pulled himself up by pulling on Father Padilla's cassock, whilst bullets from snipers were hitting the street around them.

The picture was taken by Caracas photographer Hector Rondón Lovera for the Venezuelan newspaper La Republica. It was awarded the World Press Photo of the Year and the 1963 Pulitzer Prize for Photography.

It reminds me of what a priest did in Belfast in 1988.

James, Michael Caine tipped the corpse of his opponent into the North Sea from the coal staithes at Easington. At the beginning of the film CARTER
Michael Caine (or CARTER) went straight from the Central Station into the Long Bar where he was brought up to speed by a local villain. I've drank in the Long Bar several times, and I used to live near where CARTER had lodgings.
