Nice picture John, but it has already been photographed restored on June 15th last year

Lovely pic. Nice to see the council do something aesthetically pleasing for a change. Also, Windy Miller will be pleased his house is all done up.

Nice photo John. Just because it has been photographed before Derek, doesn't mean to say it can't be done again! Always nice to see something from anothers point of view.

Tony said the dome and the sails look almost plastic in b/w

The dome is fiber glass just like the one they took down.

If you look here on youtube you can see it being done up.
