I know at lot of forumies enjoy old photos of Albufeira and I've noticed quite a few being posted on the Facebook group "Destination Albufeira ".

I'm sure lots of you will have seen these photos before - & perhaps took some of them ;) - but just in case you haven't, they're worth a look. 📸

Yes Col, they, and other groups, have no compunction in lifting our pictures. A credit would be nice!
I posted a pic of the pond in The Square, Old Town from 1981. October actually. I know this because I took the picture of my then girlfriend, now wife, sitting in front of it.
It took four minutes, yes just four minutes from me posting on here to someone lifting it and posting it on a Facebook group page!
Not a kiss my ar5e or thank you.

BTW I  have posted quite a few old pictures on Destination Albufeira facebook page. The ones I posted came from Old Algarve Photos & Costumes e tradicoes facebook pages. Also some by Artor Pastor.

An old building but not an old photo. Where and what?

Unusual to see no graffiti on an old building. Could it be at the rear of somewhere like the old mansion where there is some sort of fencing I wonder?

Me thinks it’s the old sports club near the church on the shortcut that brings you out at Eddy’s Bar. 
Maybe??

Bob D is correct. It's the former HQ of Imortal DAC (sports club) on Rua dos Sinos near the church.

It's been empty for many, many years. Although it seems in a prime location,  there is no vehicle access so has limited appeal to developers.
