So every now and then, I tell myself I’ll sort out “some of those boxes we never go in”. Rarely a profitable enterprise. Take my advice… don’t bother, if you find yourself in the same situation.
Not uninteresting, mind you – just not a lot to show for the effort. All kinds of fascinating mementos hide away in various rubbermaids in dusty crevices of the laundry. On this particular occasion I came across a box of postcards. Some posted to us, some added to “the collection” by friends, and many bought at places we visited, as better photos than we’d ever take! One of the latter was bought at The City Museum and Art Gallery, Birmingham. It’s of a William Morris print, called Snakeshead, and created in c. 1876. It was designed for printed cotton fabric.
