On Saturday, very nice place. Would have liked to be buy prints from the Shirley Baker exhibition. Some beautiful colour pictures of Hulme, taken on a summer’s day in 1965.
Courtesy of Retronaut, and necessary for this first week of January: “During the 1920s, the British firm Parker-Holladay created a fictional character named Bill Jones. Mr. Jones’ dispensed his friendly advice to British clerical workers through colorful lithographic posters emblazoned with his get-right-to-the-point maxims. The firm exported Bill Jones to the United States and Canada where he urged employees to develop the pluck and can-do attitude that develops success.”
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,300 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.
Loved this exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery. All cut from paper, and they let you take pics too. Brill
