The hunt for all things 1950’s!

This week was the big move back to London town, a last scavenge in Dorking’s finest charity shops certainly paid off and I managed to pick up a few gems.

Still working with the 50’s theme I was lucky enough to arrive just as a lady (who happened to be a friend from schools mum!) was donating some of her father’s belongings. I left with a diary he had written in 1957, a plate of notable events dated 1959 and a metal etching/stamp, which is an areal view of an old manor house, ooh and not forgetting the brother typewriter!

So all these goody’s along with my grandfathers medals from the war, which I have now figured out how to translate into my work will all play a part in the reinvention of Walter and Doris!
