which was obviously very near the Elevator, as seen in the background

Martin told his daughter this was a petrified shark, I think this was a large Ichthyosauria fossil
I haven't seen this one, so not a guarantee.

Rumour is these are pictures of the local Doctor and his family This baby would be a grown person now. Any names?
