Interesting . My grand mother and many old women in Iran used to make such thing for table cloth or blanket ... we call it
چهل تیکه
means "40 pieces "

Now after years I can see another one in a very beautiful shot .
Good luck .

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

Doesn't the next comment show how stupid at least I am. So, you mention a place and "The Wall"..I waste the next 20 minutes internet-thrashing to find out if Pink Floyd recorded the song at this location. What did we ever do before the internet? Have a simpler life where we didn't check every word and phrase!!!

28 Jun 2012 10:26am

@CElliottUK: Although Darlington's former football club's 25000 seater stadium might be a little small for a Pink Floyd gig these days, I do remember watching them at The Odeon in Newcastle circa 1975, I think only the Beatles had been doing huge stadium gigs previously (other than the festivals of course).
