John writes : "A rare aerial view of St Augustine's from the
college archives date unknown.
Note the lake : this was
actually a large puddle which appeared when it rained heavily.*
By coincidence, this is somewhat similar in outline to Africa, and was
thus known as 'Lake Africa'. "
*Apparently it only rains once a year for 365 days.
Tim Pascall recently wrote to say that he has "
[some] aerial photos taken when my father visited Blacklion with a small
plane, having landed at Enniskillen Airport (yes, it exists) after I
had chased the cows off the runway! "
I wonder if this photo was taken by Tim's father ?
