  52. Wonderful shots of a splendid sunset.

    Oh, so many long years ago, when Aussies trained here in Canada during the Second World War, I knew a dear man whose home was at #7 Margate Street, Kogarah, - somehow I have remembered that address for over sixty years!!

    I enjoy your pictures for that reason, and also because they are quite superb.
