1262 : Sat In God's Waiting Room


There is something slightly hazy about this old scanned negative. Something slightly hazy about the four pensioners. They were sat in Eastbourne, a town which is often referred to as "God's Waiting Room" because of the preponderance of pensioners. I wonder if they are still sat there now, a third of a century later.

I think I saw a play once called "Waiting for Godot" I didn't understand it, but I do remember a line of people sitting in a row like in your photo and one by one they were called in --somewhere off stage -- presumably heaven. I was still in high school I think and didn't understand a word of it but your blog reminded me of it.
