Not the local police…

Pic of the Week – 15 April 2005

Kay adds:

“I took this photo of our German pal Walter the other day, at our favourite beer shack. He’s quite a local sight, riding round on his purple LoveMobile and wearing his bobby’s hat instead of a proper crash-helmet!

“We went round a couple of days later and the bar had been abandoned. A bit of a shock as it wasn’t due for demolition for another month yet. (Rumour has it they’re going to build a casino on the site.)”

In the end, the new development turned out to be part of a large hotel complex rather than a casino.

Walter was chuffed to bits with this photo and was still showing it to visiting friends from Germany several months later. Sadly, he wasn’t in the best of health and died in 2008.
