Lovely old Oliver 80 tractor which came along to the tractor
and vintage vehicle rally in the village. This one is a star.
Oliver the man was born in Scotland and moved to the USA
where he set up his company in Indiana. Hart and Parr made
the engines and Oliver made the bodies and implements.
They were manufactured from the late thirties to the
late forties.

Lovely old lettering in Beith's main street. Sadly the
firm no longer exists and I suspect the lettering will
disappear pretty soon.

A windy walk in Largs was a brief moment of relative calm between grey skies and rain.
Tea and cake at Nardini's made up for the wind.

Something appeals in the shapes, colours and textures.
Sometimes the ordinary is fascinating.
