After a link from Natalie at the archive I went to visit a lady in Aberford who was moving home and wanted to find someone to cherish her old Vogue and Harpers magazines from the 60's and 70's obviously I was the ideal candidate and filled my boot full to the point where I was unsure that the car would drive safely. They are wonderful. But what was more engaging was the time with Mrs P who was in her 70's and certainly didn't look it, she was so vivacious and highly perceptive on fashion and art i had a really interesting hour with her and would love to meet her again and collect some of her wonderful tales.
