Suzie Q Ferguson's Tips for Lazy Tour Guides: Reading It Off the Waymarker
Paigetheoracle went to a place called Beccles. We received these photos and the following text:
Don't know if you can read anything on this painting, based on aerial photographs but it says that the town is Anglo-Saxon, was a seaside port and that David Frost went to school there.
The name comes from beck (stream) and leas (meadows). The former term is still used in northern England to mean the same thing but has been replaced almost everywhere else.
In the back of the Editor's mind is a stentorian German voice saying, 'David Frost? Ist das Ihnen ein Begriff?'
People were shorter then.
