OLD PICS

Post by shaggs »

Some pics of my grandfathers from the 40's
I have no idea what the poles and chicken mesh were all about but if you look closely there are a few of them

Awesome mate, love to know what the first one is, definitely seem to be strategically placed in the gutter. Look like a lockable pen though?

Pic 1 is an early detention centre, set up to stop dwarves infiltrating the main land. Zoom in and look at the lengths they went to to stop midgets taking control of all the small shi.t. Obviously a fail because my most reliable decky is a tiny little midget frig with turbo charged tonsils and a fetish for the fuller figured ladies.
