From the drama of John Spooner
searching the internet for knickers yesterday, we have a dramatic outlook today from Teelin in Co. Donegal. Look Out Cliff looks bleak and desolate in mono, but is surely a place of great natural beauty just like the rest of that county? Is that Mr. French’s assistant standing, looking out at us?

Sometimes Flickr is quite close. There is one wall still there; does that count as still standing? In 2010 via [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/] [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/4863575767/] Maybe "Cliff" is the name of the signaller/assistant ?
