FOR HARRIS MACHINES

I JUST LOVE THESE OLD RECEIPTS...THEY PUT YOU RIGHT BACK THERE ON THAT DAY...LIKE READING AN

OLD NEWSPAPER...THIS ONE'S FOR A 66K LOTUS DECAL FOR MRS TAYLOR FROM BECCLES, DATED 1919...

£8 WAS A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY BACK THEN AND SHE MUST'VE BEEN OVER THE MOON WITH HER NEW TOY...

WHAT A STRANGE WORLD IT IS HUH?....I BOUGHT A 66K LOTUS RECENTLY FOR £10....

AND A BIT  OF RANDOMNESS...I JUST THOUGHT I'D GOOGLE ''BLACK BOY SEWING MACHINE BECCLES''

TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED...THERE IS INDEED A SEWING MACHINE SHOP THERE BUT ESTABLISHED IN 1967....

 

BUT 4 LINKS BELOW THAT WAS THIS...

''1915East Suff Gaz 5 Oct 
ACCIDENT: Mr & Mrs Taylor of the Blackboy Inn, Blyburgate, met with an accident while driving home from Lowestoft.

At the bend near Worlingham Lodge their trap collided with a vehicle coming from Beccles and Mr & Mrs Taylor were thrown out,

and badly bruised and injured, and Mrs Taylor fractured a small bone in her arm. Both were rendered unconscious.

Mrs Taylor was removed to a hut at the Denbigh camp.''

 

I WONDER IF THAT WAS MRS TAYLOR?...EITHER WAY THE PAGE MADE A SURREAL READ...

BROTHELS, ASSASSINATION, KITCHENER, WAR, BATTLE OF MONS, HURRICANES, SUICIDE,

HEROES AND DESERTERS, MINES, AIRSHIPS, GALLIPOLI, ATTACK AND DEATH....

 

AS I SAID...WHAT A STRANGE WORLD IT IS...
