I've been in the loft today, thats where the afternoon vanished. I've got more stuff ready to go to the OTA archive at Shrewsbury. I've all the notebooks Terry Barker kept ref his cine film which we had to get a bank loan to pay for back in the day as the say now. Anyway they way a fair bit, there are also lots of good quality cine reels which had Terry's family material on, they didn't want it back so it frees up lots of now hard to source quality reels which always come in handy in any archive, I've kept a few back for PMP. Another box has my CDs with the images transferred from negs and another box the recent transfer of PMP collections and subsequent deposit of the cine reels. The other bag is the return of reels I've scanned for the OTA.
While I was in the attic I found quite a lot of slides, I was astonished that they have survived the heat, cold, damp and reroofing. There are shots on lots of our early trips such as Portugal, Netherlands, Sierra Leone etc, looking forward to time to scan them. Also put aside are a pile of photos to go in the South East sales stock of mainly Brighton and a few Maidstone. I also unearthed all my very early Eastbourne Corp photo albums the only ones which haven't yet been sent to a good home. I may well scan them for the Eastbourne dedicated website which has show up a few rarities and oddities. A few more things have gone into my memorabilia box and quite a lot into the bin. Horrifying that some things are collectors items but if of low value it really isn't worth advertising them such as timetables. Also unearthed some of my coin and bank note collection which has been untouched since the 1980's.
On that theme I wonder what the date will be to go back to £ s and d, and when do we stop the fuel coming in litres not to mention letting people use centipedes and millipedes to measure with, it means nothing to me at all so glad there is a good side to Brexit. I never got my head around any of this metric nonsense, its as bad as trying to find an address when all the streets are on blocks the same, no use without some nice bends, alleys and snooks!
Its Manchester bus film day tomorrow, hoping for two hours north and south routes with Stagecoach then First, Go Ahead and Rotala.
