Rides/Transport List Photos - Update

Dear All

Following on from the recent NFA Rides Lists topic, we are going to expand the Rides & Tranport List photos.

From now, when a new photo is added to the Rides List or Transport list, the "old" photo will be kept. It will be copied onto a separate page and hosted off of the forum (to save our meagre storage allowance). I will put a link to the Ride/Transport "archive" page on the forum topic.

Eventually I hope that this will build into a history of the ride/lorry featured.

I must stress that, as all the pages have to be hand coded by me, this is a long term project - don't expect to see anything like the old NFA pages sometime soon :)

If you have any historic photos that you would like to include, please feel free to add them to the Ride/Transport topic. I will then create the page as time allows. We can also include narrative that is relevant to the ride if you wish to include it (with or without a photo).

Usual forum rules apply, you MUST own the copyright to any photo you submit or have the express permission of the copyright holder.

All the best

Bill

To give you an idea of what I am trying to achieve please see http://www.fun-fairs.co.uk/topic/2776-harris-james-supreme/and click the link at the bottom "Link to archive photos"

I would appreciate your feedback on this. It's a fair amount of work, which isn't a problem if it's useful :)

We have now added the majority of NFA numbers to the Rides List topic titles and amended the NFA reference to a longer version.

You can now search for a ride using the NFA reference using the format NFA??? where ??? is the NFA reference e.g. NFAA210

If you have any historic photos of rides showing them in their previous decors, guises etc, please reply to the Rides List entry and I will add them to the archive - the response to date has been somewhat disappointing :(

I think this is a very good idea - very useful.

I like the idea of having the link to the archive photos (instead of having the photos all on the Rides List together), which not only saves space on this Forum, but also keeps the Rides List entries neat and up-to-date with only the most recent photos of the ride + transport (otherwise the Rides List entries would look very cluttered wouldn't they).

Give it time Bill. I am sure photos will be added in due course (People are out and about at the moment :) ). There are lots of members on here with lots of historic photos. I am certain they will be added - even it it takes until winter when people are more "free".

I have quite a few historic photos I can add when I get the chance.
