Causewayhead Penzance 1990s

Taken after a snow fall in the 1990's. This is Causewayhead looking across from the old cattle market car park. This picture shows Robert Fletcher's electrical shop... the most interesting part of this picture is the blue vending machine in the wall of the garage. This vending machine would dispense paraffin to anyone day or night for the princely sum of 50p a gallon. You had to bring along your own container. Can you imagine what the hell would happen if these things still existed! Wow! by Di and Den Barnes

      Surely this machine was gone by the 90s?

      That’s not the paraffin guard, I’m pretty sure it’s me waiting to be picked up for work.
