Out and about last week I took this photo of a beautiful windmill that's being restored. I've been waiting for ages until the sails were on and I could get a picture of it with the towers of Didcot Power Station in the background. The first tower is to be demolished soon and it's always been part of my local landscape - just seems like an interesting juxtaposition.

This telephone box (and the post box) in a place I know very well, do kind of flag up the fact that everyone now has a telephone....and all the visitors to the pretty village feeding the ducks on the pond, have a mobile phone in their pocket.
Out of the shed, where it's been languishing for a few years, came this old typesetting tray. Back in the dark ages when I first started work in publishing I took a Pre-tech Printing Course and learnt the rudiments of typesetting by hand - absolutely fascinating - so I love these trays. Actually lino-type (told you it was the dark ages*) was still in use and filmsetting was the NEW thing! A new fangled computer filled a vast room!
Anyway this will be used to display miniatures when I've cleaned it up...which won't be a quick job.
Thank you for looking.
