Thanks for the tip! Some great photos there - the cart and donkey on Pine Walk looks so peaceful, and the Hotel Illa Dor so impressive! Wish I knew how to print them all off!
Not sure if this link will work, but if so it will take you to the main album page.

Welcome to Facebook

Brilliant pictures Lornzo thanks for posting, as for printing out just right click the picture and choose 'save picture as' and then save it to your PC, then print out as usual, I would check that they are not copyrighted first

Thanks SWS - will give that a try.

As for copyright - I thought anything put on a social networking site such as Facebook became open and therefore the copyright laws didn't stand. Perhaps need to check up on this as I may be wrong - has been known to happen on the rare occasion! lol

Well done Lorenzo and Belladonna in finding the photos and the link, they are wonderful.
I left clicked on my mouse and clicked "Save Picture As.." I then printed onto photograph paper, they turn out very well.

Thanks again

Youre welcome PP! I too managed to do the "click, save and print" thing - thanks to heads up - yet again - from sws! They do come out well. Still trying to work out where the bull ring was though!

Default Good or what!?

Ok! After much inter island communications today, super sleuth bella has been able to report that this photo of the bullring was taken 40 years ago, and was behind what is now the estate agent Sol Imobilaria, near Eroski - by the plane roundabout.

Now, if some super map googler can now sort out a link which shows the area, we can do a "now and then" shot!

I thank you!

Thanks Bella, very interesting, this seems to be a bit of PP history that not many of us know about.

Spent a happy time this afternoon showing these photos to my parents. Then had a look at the people who 'like' them on Facebook and tried to work out who is on here...
