Subject: RE: Origins: The Cruel Ship's Captain (Broadside?)
Slight thread drift but I think ,interesting. St James work house, Kings Lynn fell down in the 1860's. The Clock in the tower was being repaired and the clock mender got frustrated, kicked some part of the mechanism and the lot fell! Only two(?) deaths as everyone was in church it being a Sunday. There is a photograph in the local archives. Cutting edge technology at the time.
