I think it has a hangover this morning – it's looking a bit bloodshot.
it is shining on the railway bridge which carries the abandoned Elham
Valley railway line over the road. This line used to link Folkestone
with Canterbury. At the coastal end during World War 2 an enormous

Continuing the series of passport portraits in my collection. Peruse and wonder.
Mr. J. Milton Hubbard is a 70 year old Merchant from Boston who wants to visit Europe. He was born in 1851 and it is now 1922.
On his passport he is described as being 5 feet, 5 inches tall and having a high forehead, grey eyes, aquiline nose, large moustached mouth, broad forehead, grey hair, pale complexion and oval face. In the event that you might still be unable to identify him from inspecting his photograph, to this description is added the distinguishing feature of 'dent between the eyes.'
He sails to Liverpool where he disembarks on 1st. July 1922. He then visits France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy before returning to Dover on 16th August 1922 to go to find his ship in Liverpool.
