And yet more turn up

Found another set of Adox R17 negatives. 4 strips with 12 pix of the seawall work in the early 60's. They were taken on my Agiflex III camera. 

and show the work done when Kelting was still the chief engineer for the Somerset Rivers Board. Using a new system (I think thought up by one of his juniors) of binding loose hard core with a bitumastic, held with a wire mesh.

It certainly worked OK because it was still holding when the last job done by the Environment Agency took place over 40 years later.
I think I will post all 12  to the Clevedon Group on Flickr.
It will certainly make a change from the never ending "Pier at sunset" etc. postings.
