Old Menorca resort and beach pics

Post by mthompson1875 » November 4th, 2018, 12:01 am

Apologies if posted before but stumbled across this fantastic range of old Menorca beach and resort pics dating back decades....

http://menorcaimatgesdenprimer.blogspot ... l.html?m=1

Love the aerial shots of Cala n porter and Santa Tomas showing how much things have developed in the space of a relatively short time. Also Galdana with no development in 1969. Hopefully they bring back yesteryear holiday memories for some!
Santo Tomas 2014, 2015
Son Bou 2016, 2018
Binibeca 2017
Cala Blanca 2019, 2020

Amazed there was a wall, seemingly with different boundaries, around the Son Bou basilica all those years ago. A local landowner, rather than ‘government’?

Just seen this thread,
A lovely photo ( towards the end ) of the illa den colom............

Showing Roberto Esbert Pons proudly standing in the water next to his little white boat the ' mv Arc ', in his trademark baggy shorts ( and no doubt a cigar not far away).
There is a plaque dedicated to him on the slipway in Es Grau , for his services of ferrying people back and forth. I have a photo of the plaque , I will try to post it.

I still have the photo of me in his boat on my first trip in 1968 using his service . I am 60 now ! ! ! !

Untill 2014 the remains of the 'mv Arc ' was lying in somebodys front garden in Es Grau.

So below are .... the plaque , Roberto and me 1968, and the original photo from this thread.............. phew. :barmy:
