>>Hi Tony, The "little wooden hut" featured in your first picture today was, for many years, the global headquarters of The Mountain Goat Bus Company aka Taylor and Hudson Ltd. which began operation in 1972. Taylor had the idea, Hudson among others had the money. The hut was well situated, painted white with green and red trim, visible to tourists arriving by train and walking into town, long, long before Booths and Lakeland. Mountain Goat subsequently moved into the small but more substantial building just visible to the left of the "little wooden hut" before shacking up with the Tourist Information Centre in its present location. There were two of the little, more substantial buildings fronting the street. The one taken over by Mountain Goat was occupied by a Building Society while the uphill one was the Coal Board office where one ordered one's coal and paid one's coal bill. Just a little trip down memory lane. Thank you, as always, for the daily pictures. Great to see that you have a new walking companion (or two). Best regards, Tim.
