Sweet :-)

This in another "decoration" in front of the Silesia shopping centre. This piece of machinery is front-end overhead loader, but the English name doesn't sound so funny like the Polish one: ładowarka przedsiębierna zasierzutna :)))).
In the past such things were used in underground mines here in Silaesia, and, as you can see, it is on display in the beer garden.

That does look sort of neat and cute. What sort of mines were there in Silesia?

I visited Poland twice when I was in the British Army, a big old Soviet tank training area- I must look on a map to see if I can find it again!

Finally Internet (Because I can have Internet only the weekend and the public holidays), I can visit your blog. This weekend I present Martel in version black and white. I prefer the photographs in b&w and you?
