Old pictures of Ramsgate, Margate and Broadstairs, perhaps a ramble.
This mostly involved painting the view from Chocolate Cafe, I bought a few secondhand cds for the replacement car (the old one had a cassette player)
Mind you I also bought some books for the bookshop and some of those I know I won't make a profit on selling them, even a couple that I will probably make a loss on, but it means that we have got them in stock.
I paid £5 for the Abbey Road cd in Canterbury, wages were about £30 per week when it came out in 1969 I think the album cost about £1.50 or £1/10- when I bought it back then so about 5% of the average weekly wage which would be about £50 today. I may have made a mistake in my calculations here, but it sounds about right.
The in car cd player means having physical music rather than virtual, like physical books rather than files and a device produces a completely different environment among the small group of people in the car and this is something I want to keep to.
On the bookshop front here is the link to the books that went out Saturday
