And the Samples (sic) Rooms beside the hotel are not for sampling the brew but were used by travelling salesmen to display samples of their wares.

Cambridge Museum #27

New to me. The Lake Street Sample Rooms has become a rather flash hair salon – right next door to the rather flash frock shop Justify (a must see when in Cambridge – I am reliably informed by those in the know). The POV has the Jubilee Gardens and Cenotaph directly behind me and the town hall (more on this soon) over my left shoulder. The car (c.1993) is mine – just seemed to suit the image. And on a slightly related subject – travelling – I have begun plotting the location of my photos – manually – with the freshly minted geopositioning gizmo using Google maps. So early an adoptor of such that I have yet to find an application that shows me the result. I cannot figure out how to access the info with either Chrome or FireFox (the FireFox instructions are as geeky as) – and I don’t have a 3G phone – perhaps you’ll have more luck.
