South Foreland Lighthouse is a Victorian lighthouse on the South . It went out of service in 1988 and is currently owned by the National Trust.

South Foreland Lighthouse is a Victorian lighthouse on the South Foreland in St. Margaret's Bay, Dover, Kent, England, used to warn ships approaching the nearby Goodwin Sands. Another lighthouse had previously stood on the site since at least 1730 and during most of this time it was manned by the Knott family of lighthouse keepers. South Foreland was the first lighthouse to use an electric light. Strategically situated on the white cliffs of Dover, this historic lighthouse (first ever to be powered by electricity) & owned by the National Trust, proved to be very interesting indeed.

White Cliffs of Dover, Canterbury & Kent Coast Day Tour. Wow. What a stunning location to walk the dogs, particularly on a sunny day. We parked up in the National Trust car park (£6) and had lunch at the nice cafe they have there. The food was simple but cheap

White Cliffs of Dover, Canterbury & Kent Coast Day Tour. Full-day White Cliffs of Dover and Canterbury Cathedral Tour from London. The food was simple but cheap. We had to wait an age for it to be served but it was really nice. Built in 1843, it went out of service in 1988 and is currently owned by the National Trust. It is notable as having been the first lighthouse to use an electric light, and was the site chosen by Guglielmo Marconi for his pioneering experiments in wireless radio transmissions.

The . mile section will complete a five-mile stretch of coastline owned by the trust, between Dover port and South Foreland lighthouse. Launched in June, the appeal reached its total two months earlier than expected. The trust said the area is important to wildlife and is home to Kent's only kittiwakes.

This Traviata is the best I have heard w/Sutherland. The vocal pyrotecnics are easy and her portrayal, is more nuanced than earlier performances- she phrases beautifully, floats gorgeous high notes and in the Amami Alfredo opens up and pours forth a huge sound unique to her. Domingo at 29 reveals a warm, beautiful tone, great drama and subtle phrasing. His Alfredo is more complete than most - lighter voiced Alfredo's who tend to sound more consumptive and weak than Violetta.

The Lucia is beyond believe- Sutherland still has the high notes and facility that are amazing. Some of the embellishments are new - not even in her first studio recording. They are musically appropriate and magnificently executed and in the Sextet and the scene that follows it her voice pours over the chorus in a way that it fantastic. I heard her live about this time and I remember her voice soaring over chorus, orchestra and the other soloists and she still sounded like she had more in reserve.

It is one of the great memories of opera I ever had!!!!!

Domingo is great - warm, ardent and his voice flows beautifully.

One negative- the Lucia sound is mediocre and some of Sutherland's trills in the lower register hardly come through- but I know from personal experience that they are there.

I would love to have complete performances of each of these.

Remember these beautiful songs from when I was a little girl - can even recall the words. Just too precious and also brings back memories of my mother and father.

My wife loves '40s music and this is her favorite. It has a good selection of music from that era. It's swell music to listen to at the officer's club while you're having a beer with Richard Bong and the fellas.

This CD contains some of the best music heard during this time of some of our lives. It brings back memories that no other period could every return.
