Wings of the Weird & Wonderful (Consign)
Eric Winkle Brown, the former Chief Naval Test Pilot and Commanding Officer of the renowned Aerodynamics Flight at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough, is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as having flown more types of aircraft than any other pilot in the world. The ground rules for this assessment were that only pilot-in-command flights should count, and that marks or variants of a basic type of aircraft were not included.
This remarkable record is reflected in the fact that Captain Brown is both the most decorated Fleet Air Arm and British test pilot. The variety of aircraft he has flown is incredible, and though his test and naval flying writings are already internationally known, he now has opened up pages of his Flying Log Books to reveal some of the more unusual types in his unique experience, and to relate their virtues or vices.
From the infamous Mitsubishi Zero-Sen and U.S. Navy s piston-engine Grumman F8F-2 Bearcat to the post-war swept-wing de Havilland Swallow. From the North American Savage designed to take off from an aircraft carrier with a nuclear bomb to the Supermarine Attacker, Eric Winkle Brown has tested their qualities and takes the reader into the cockpits of those exciting aircraft to thrill to the joys and hazards of flying both weird and wonderful aircraft with one of the greatest of all pilots.
Context: Portland, Railroad Metropolis
Milepost zero for almost every railroad in Portland is Union Station, seen here. Built by the Northern Pacific Terminal, it is the oldest Union Station west of St. Louis. The station's clock-tower and iconic neon signs make it a landmark that endures today, and a fine symbol of how important the railroad was to Portland's past.
Portland is a crossroads. It occupies a strategic geographic location where east-west and north-south trade routes converge. To the city's east the Columbia Gorge, the sole water-level crossing of the Cascade-Sierra divide and a trade route for water-bourne and overland commerce with the vast Western interior, the Great Plains, and Canada. To the north, the timberlands of the Puget Sound region and connections to mineral wealth of British Columbia and Alaska. To the south, California. Perhaps most importantly, though, was what lay to the city's west: a navigable waterway connecting to the Pacific Ocean and the promise of rich Asian trade. As Portland historian E. Kimbark MacColl notes:
"The city's location at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers in the very heart of a region enormously rich in natural resources preordained its future growth and wealth. Being at the head of deep-sea navigation it could take full advantage of an ancient maxim, that commerce seeks its most inland point of distribution(1)."
It is no surprise then that, as railroads began to blossom across the West, Portland became a major destination to reach. Early attempts at railroad building aimed at linking the city with California(2). The lines that would be most important to the city and the region, however, occupied east-west routes(3). By 1911, over 5,569 miles of track would be tributary to Portland(4). Over time, the majority of the railroads serving the city would fall under the control of one of two rival corporate empires of James J. Hill and Edward H. Harriman(5). A quick description of each of the major companies -- as they existed in the study period of 1945-1979 -- will prove of great value to understanding the wider context of Portland's switching districts.
In 1945, Portland was served directly by three major railroads, the Southern Pacific (SP), the Spokane Portland and Seattle Railway (SP&S), and the Union Pacific (UP). For each, the city was a terminus, which in railroad terminology means that it was the final destination of a major railroad line. A 1960 map from the city's Metropolitan Planning Commission shows the SP controlling two lines, the mainline on the east side, and the so-called Jefferson Street line hugging the western shore of the Willamette River south of Portland; the SP&S entering from the north with a line paralleling Front Avenue, and two UP routes, one down Sullivan's Gulch next to present day Interstate 84, and another paralleling the Columbia River and entering the city from the north(6).
In addition to these three companies, the city had a fourth major railroad in the form of the Northern Pacific Terminal Company. This company was created in 1882 as a joint subsidiary of the Northern Pacific, the Oregon & California (SP), and the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company (UP)(7). The NPT's track was located entirely in the northwest segment of the city, and comprised of yards, industrial tracks, and a short segment of mainline, and additionally the company owned and managed the city's Union Station(8). NPT changed its name to Portland Terminal Railroad Company in 1965(9).
Other railroads did serve the city via complicated corporate relationships. The Northern Pacific served the city thanks largely to its partial ownership of the SP&S (50%) and the NPT (40%)(10). Great Northern, being the other partner in ownership of the SP&S, also served the city, without owning any track within it(11). Thanks to trackage rights that came as a concession of the 1970 merger of the GN, NP, SP&S, and the Chicago Burlington and Quincy, the Milwaukee Road gained access to the city(12). In north Portland was a vest-pocket shortline, the Peninsula Terminal, whose 3.5 miles of track existed largely to serve the the stockyard industry(13). None of these railroads, however, developed urban industrial areas of their own.
The only other railroad that had any significant impact on the urban rail fabric of Portland was an independent interurban railway, the Portland Traction. This company began as a passenger oriented route linking rural portions of Multnomah and Clackamas counties with the city. Originally owned by the city's privately held electric utility, PTC was sold to a San-Francisco based transit holding company in 1946(14). The new owners did all they could to kill off passenger service on the line, something they finally achieved in 1958. Freight only at last, the company was sold once more in 1961 and became a joint subsidiary of the SP and UP(15).
These companies represented the legacy of an industry that had resha
Huddersfield market - sign of the times!!
Huddersfield market used to be a hive of activity, in very recent years it's gone into rapid decline, some outdoor stalls have been consigned to the history books, in order to make extra parking space.
On secondhand days, - tues & sat, Kirklees council charge around ?17 for a stall, also, you need insurance and if you have time off, sick etc the market staff won't let a friend run your stall on your behalf, they give it someone else for the day, charge them ?17, then they charge you half the stall rent extra, next time you return, for not being there, costing you ?25.50.
Car parking charges add another ?2-?4 a day, so you need to make over ?20 a time, to cover these expenses.
Compare this with a car boot sale, ?8-?10 for a stall, free parking, share your pitch with friends if you want, without any red tape or beaurocracy, I'm afraid visitors to Huddersfield market expect car boot prices, they fail to see it's not a car boot sale, it's a more specialised market, with traders trying to make a living, buying & selling antiques and furniture, collectables and bric a brac.
So there you have it, Kirklees council at one end, forcing prices up, while the visiting public, many of them jobseekers or pensioners, on just state pension, are holding prices down, by refusing to pay much over ?5 for anything. Many traders have regularly taken less than ?20 a day, and so given up the unequal struggle, leaving the result seen here. A very sad tale!!!!
