Something To Look Forward To
I've just spent the last couple of days In Great Yarmouth. A typical Victorian seaside town in Norfolk. One that has seen better days, but some new investment is appearing. Naturally I took loads of photos. The first one promotes their forthcoming festival in September.
You may be wondering what the figure of half lion, half fish is. Well it represents the emblem of the town. The fish is because they used to have a strong fishing industry & the lion relates to the time when the town made most of the ships for the Royal Navy that sailed against the Spanish & so the King at the time allowed the town to use part of his crest for theirs.
