    Not much will drag me out to West London, but one that definitely will is the promise of transport nerdery. This Saturday (after spending the morning viewing the Cheapside Hoard with Kathryn – phew, culture all over) we trundled way over to Acton Town to visit the London Transport Museum Depot‘s open day.

  • From the Ephemera Fair

    February 9th 2011 katie

    A good haul from Sunday’s Ephemera Society Fair: Not the best photo sorry, but our star buys were the 1920s Ray Cycles poster that looks bang up-to-date (reminds me of Telegramme’s work) and the handsome pigeon portraits.
