The mention of jigsaw -related artwork led me to dig out this from my loft. It is a 1000 piece puzzle of a painting by David Wright, entitled "Summer Showers". (railway art connection!) Not normally my area of expertise, but I have decided to have a dabble.

Thanks for viewing and your history of Blackpool Central Station, Tornado. In its heyday (the station no longer exists) it had 14 platforms, reflecting the towns importance has a holiday destination.

The jigsaw is now at the "sky" stage, several hundred seemingly identical pieces!

If you were to stand where that photograph was taken today would you be in the Coral Island amusement arcade?

I never realised "jigsawing" was so fiddly! Progress is slow.
