    Knocker..

     

    A very good find.

    It will give us a chance to go back to the 60's with some real visual data.

    Lets hope that it is kept as a a valuable data resource. It looks very good so far, with this guy. Lets hope that  it seen as a valuable data resource and not a threat.

    Time will tell......
