Thanks for the whole series of wonderful photographs which certainly for me bring back some very happy memories of Brocklebank's ships and fantastic places. Your images are the best that I have seen of the period and certainly better than any that I produced at the time.

Looking at the Temple of the tooth picture above, if my memory serves me correctly there was a moat behind the low wall at the front that contained fish. I was told that it was an effective control of the mosquitoes as being buddists, the monks would not kill any living creature.

Best regards and thanks again.

John
