Photograph byMaynard Uwen Williams SUNSHINE AND A KILTIE BAND BRING SUNDAY CROWDS TO PLYMOUTH'S HOE In England, where sunshine is measured along with temperature, this limestone plateau between Sound and Town isafavorite playground (pages 62and 65). When Sunday lives up to its name, the Hoe is one of the gayest spots in England. This view from Smeaton's Towerlooks toward Cornwall, shadowy duchy beyond the boundary river, the Tamar, in upper left. For a trifling fee one may sit in a steamer chair and listen to the band ordream oftheseamen who have put forth from the Hoe to win glory, fame, and loot on the Seven Seas.
