Calle San José en Santander, Cantabria, Spain we had a couple hours to kill while waiting for our ferry trip back to England. So we walked. Right into the neighborhood of ship dismantling firms. They had every size of ships lantern from modern to vintage, copper pots big enough for batch tubs. Wheels, port holes, stacks of weather worn wood. Just warehouse after warehouse of treasures.
